Kathak Mahotsav Canada 2012: September 20-23, 2012

Kathak Mahotsav Canada 2012, now in its fifth year, is a festival of Kathak dance that is modeled after the springtime “Dubars” of the Moghul courts. It is a gathering of Canadian Kathak artists in celebration of the art of Kathak, showcasing the adaptability and relevance of classical Kathak styles, from its temple origins to the present.

The Kathak Mahotsav furthers Artistic Director Rina Singha’s vision of sharing with Canadian dance audiences the lyrical beauty and subtleties that distingush Kathak from other dance forms, and provide a deeper understanding of the rythmic and narrative elements of Kathak.
