Echoes and I Imagine
Choreographed by contemporary Kathak icon Aditi Mangaldas, Echoes is a stunning approach to the traditional art form of Kathak. In this piece, both choreographer and performer tell us about the strings that connect us to our ancestors. Aakash dances across a stage invaded by cascades of bells as a mesmerizing symbol of this resounding ties, offering us a glance into Kathak’s divinity and mysterious ways.
In I Imagine, Aakash explores the dynamism of dance theatre by embodying three generations of immigrants through masks and acting. The result? A visceral and humorous story of migration and identity. This piece was co-created with spoken-word artist Sabrina Mahfouz whose voice opens the dozens of suitcases piled on stage, thus unveiling endless stories that Aakash’s characters share with us.
