Storytelling through Kathak
Storytelling through Kathak by Divya Goswami
14th June 2019
5 - 7 pm
‘Kathak’ the very word is derived from the word ‘katha’ . Kathaa hake so Kathik kahave, hence Kathak is the dance of the story tellers.
Indian Classical dance forms are associated with the narration of tales from mythology, history, our kings, rulers, gods, goddess, saints and poets, and is very much valid and needed in the times of today. I carry the same theme in my performances. Also it is my personal opinion that there lies a huge abstract story of rhythm, movement, time and space, which is completely beyond words, ideas and judgments that remain to be told. This abstract form of narration is the binding factor between humans and is made visible only through dance.
