11-15 October 2016 GAUHAR a drama with songs

This new play tells the fascinating story of an Indian classical superstar of the early 20th century. A fiery, feisty, independent-minded woman, she was the first indian to have her own voice recorded, and her personal life was as mesmerising as her professional one.

Cast

Rajeshwari Sachdev, Zila Khan, Denzil Smith, Danny Sura, Rajeev Siddhartha, Gillian Pinto and Parinaz Jal.

Gauhar Jaan was a pioneer of the Thumri tradition in Indian classical music, and the play explores the life and music of this extraordinary woman through drama and song.

The play also offers an exciting glimpse of that period:Allahabad, Benares, Lucknow and Kolkata at the turn of the 20th Century. 

Guahar opened to rave reviews and full houses in India in November 2015 and has toured to several prestigious thratre festivals around the country.It is inspired by Vikram Sampath's meticulously researched and much praised book My name is Gauhar Jaan.

Duration:2hrs plus a 15 minute interval

Rani Khanam is one of the most sensitive and astute interpreters of Lucknow Gharana of Kathak today. Her style reflects deep comprehension of the dance tradition which has set new dimensions and source of inspirations to younger generation. A powerful and imaginative dancer, Rani Khanam displays a breathtaking technique in both pure dance and in the art of abhinaya.

A cultural visionary, beside an outstanding exponent of Kathak, her contribution to the field of art is profound and unparalleled in traditional dance history. A powerful and imaginative dancer, Rani Khanam displays a breathtaking technique in both pure dance and in the art of abhinaya.

A total belief in herself and the courage to follow her aspirations which made Rani Khanam today the only Indian Muslim Kathak classical dancer of distinction who braved to dance on Islamic verses & Sufiana verses of mystic Sufi poets. It was her faith and dedication to dance that helped her scale heights having a series of firsts with her name.

As an artiste, choreographer and guru, she always strives for excellence. Rani Khanam performs both classical Kathak and her unique repertoire of sacred dances. Her bold and intellectual compositions in traditional themes are brilliant and unique
