SHAKTI Odissi Ensemble Performance


Shakti brings to life through odissi dance and music, the beliefs and practises of Eastern India: devotion to a chosen deity and the sensual expression of human and divine love. With live musical accompaniment to a quartet of dancers.

Live musical accompaniment, for the first time by UK based musicians, draws out the intricacies of melody and rhythm while the dancers create harmonies of movement, in a richly textured evening of solo and group choreographies.

Kadam Pulse bring together the finest odissi artists in the country to collaborate in the creation of a magical experience that will move and thrill. Elena Catalano, Katie Ryan, Maryam Shakiba and Kali Chandrasegaram make up the quartet of dancers with accompanying musicians Gurdain Rayatt and Dhruv Jogia percussion, Ranjana Ghatak vocals and Jahnavi Harrison violin and vocals.

Suitable for age 6+

Presented by Kadam/Pulse
