After performing to sold out crowds in Cincinnati during its maiden venture in 2010, Kathanauki School is back with yet another breathtaking performance. This year the show is being held on the International Women’s Day which is being celebrated on March 8, 2013. Hence, the theme of the show is the ‘Woman’. It will be an evening dedicated to women and to saluting their economic, political, and social achievements. It honors and celebrates women in all fields, be it Aung San Suu Kyi, Mother Teresa or Michelle Obama.
A Classical dance form of northern India, Kathak literally means 'to tell a story' and is derived from the dance-dramas of ancient India. Rossana Bandyopadhyay, founder of Kathanauki School of Dance, will perform along with her students to dedicate an evening to Women on the eve of International Women’s Day. 'She' reflects primarily on the various stages of a girl becoming a woman. The dances celebrate their journey from being a girl, to a lover, and to a loving mother.
The show features choreography with complex spins and fast rhythmic footwork that will provide sheer visual delight. The mix of Indian classical and fusion-inspired music will add to the character of the show. The varied pace of the dancers will take the audience through several moods reflecting the energy of the dance.
