Choreographed by contemporary Kathak icon Aditi Mangaldas, Echoes is a stunning approach to the traditional art form of Kathak. In this piece, both choreographer and performer tell us about the strings that connect us to our ancestors. Aakash Odedra dances across a stage invaded by cascades of bells as a mesmerizing symbol of his resounding ties, offering us a glance into Kathak's divinity and mysterious ways. I Imagine is an exploration of the dynamism of dance-theatre by embodying three generations of immigrants through masks and acting. The result? An intuitive and humorous story of migration and identity. This piece was co-created with spokenword artist Sabrina Mahfouz whose voice opens the dozens of suitcases piled on stage, thus unveiling heart-felt stories that Aakash's characters share with us.
