Dance: Kathak Concert – Design 14

Aroha Fine Arts
Get Direction

Design 14 takes us back to Kathak’s roots of storytelling through highly technical pieces created in the dynamic 14 beat – cycle. These pieces require strength, power, and grace to perform, which are also the underlying themes of the programme.

Canadian-born dancer and choreographer Anjali Patil has been trained in India under renowned masters of Kathak – Padmabhushan Kumudini Lakhia and the Late Pandita Rohini Bhate. She is the founder and artistic director of Aroha Fine Arts, one of only a handful of organizations working in the professional Kathak dance milieu in Canada.

Anjali has performed her works at noteworthy events from the Canada Dance Festival to Delhi International Arts Festival, the Junos to International Film Festival of India. A sought-after teacher and coach, Anjali teaches in Ottawa, Toronto, India, and Middle East.

Design 14 will be performed by Anjali Patil and 5 enchanting UK based dancers, Richa Srivastava, Aditi Khare, Sara Patel, Sarah Manane, Dharinya Ganeshraja & Nilash.
