KATHAK CHROME

KATHAK CHROME

In an intimate mehfil of classical kathak vocabulary with improvisation and live music, Amina Khayyam explores the moment when Indian classical dance morphed into Hindi Cinema dance movement in the 1940s/50’s.

Joined by Malaya Bracha in one of their earlier expeditions out on their own.

For 2019/20 – Amina is in process of re-developing the piece to explore the period more explicitly in particularly the ‘item scene’ where women are leered at in sinister exploitative situations.
