Pradhanica explores the sonic possibilities of rhythm through dance and music. Fast-paced footwork, dizzying spins, and dynamic drumming come together in this contemporary presentation of the Indian classical dance form of Kathak. In Pradhanica, named for female “leader” or “head,” the dancer demonstrates her mastery over rhythm. Choreographer, dancer, and percussionist Jin Won – described as “exuberant” by The New York Times collaborates with renowned Indian music maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil to create percussion driven work that has a transformative effect.
