Kathak Darpan:
A reflection of Soul


Riverside Theatre

Event Type

Live Event

With mesmerising twirls and mathematically precise footwork, renowned Indian classical performer Guru Rajendra Gangani will bring one of the Subcontinent’s most dazzling art forms, Kathak, to life on stage in Sydney.

A highly revered artist, Guru Rajendra Gangani was honoured by the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award – the highest award for contribution to Indian performing arts – in 2003 by the then president of India, Abdul Kalam.

The performance will be supported by a cast of three live musicians from Delhi and more than 80 dancers from Sydney’s Swastik Institute of Dance. Dance pieces will range from delicate and swift movements steeped in slow rhythm to furiously energetic sequences inspired by some of Indian mythology’s most dramatic episodes.

Kathak Darpan will be a night of foot-tapping Live music, sweeping dance performances and sparkling costumes – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch a live performance by an accomplished Kathak artist in Sydney.

Date & Time: Saturday 28th October at 7pm
