This production VIVARTA is Kadamb’s tribute to the classical Kathak dance. An interpretation through dance and music of the ‘Ashtapadi’ of Kathak ‘Nir-tat-dhang’ written by the ‘Adiguru’ Maharaj Bindadin explains the manner and mien in which the Kathak dance evolved and should be performed, this can also be considered as a ‘Lakshan Geet’ of Kathak. The lyrics of every stanza of this thematic creation narrate the locale, form, and technique of Kathak and its relation to Lord Krishna’s dance.
This production called “Punarnava” was earlier choreographed by Kumudini Lakhia for Kathak Kendra, New Delhi in 2009. Sponsored by Sangeet Natak Akademi.
