Triple Bill: The Hague
19 May 2022, 8:30pm Korzo Theatre, The Hague
Aakash Odedra comes over from the UK to celebrate the opening of the India Dance Festival with a solo program. The award-winning dancer and choreographer is known for the adventurous way in which he manages to bring his classical Indian dance qualities with a mercury lightness. It has already taken him to more than 40 countries to exhibit his art. Tonight, Aakash dances three impressive solos, and each work explores different aesthetics using Aakash’s traditional background in kathak and bharatanatyam to create a distinct flavour of contemporary dance. The evening's bill include Echoes, a traditional Kathak solo choreographed by the world-renowned Aditi Mangaldas, and work made for him by the acclaimed choreographers Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Russell Maliphant. Expect a challenging program to get your dancing heart on, in which kathak, bharatanatyam and contemporary influences flow together in a natural way.
