Get on the Good Foot

Partners production | 2013

Aakash Odedra was privileged to be asked to create and perform a dance work inspired by the music of James Brown by The Apollo Theater in New York. Artistic Director of the project Otis Sallid invited Aakash to research the life and work of James Brown and to interpret his work through Kathak. Through numerous residency periods Aakash created Ecstacy which premiered at the Apollo Theater in October 2013 followed by a North American Tour.

Read a review of Aakash’s piece here in the Wall Street Journal

“Aakash Odedra whirling like a dervish, with arms rising like flames, to “Get on the Good Foot” drove the Apollo crowd wild.”
