Amina Khayyam Dance Co presents
Does everything really begin with ‘One or does it end with One?
A Kathak Dance piece by one of the UK’s most prominent and radical Kathak artists.
Sensitised by the global refugee issue, Amina Khayyam returns to the fundamental principle of Indian philosophy and classical arts of the cyclic phenomenon, where there is no beginning nor an end, to propose that we are all but refugees of time undermining how we become territorial of our habitat.
Incorporating Nritta (pure dance) and Nritya (expression of narrative), Amina’s Kathak takes you on a memorable and intimate journey, through the use of costume, movement, space and music to capture the first beat of time and nest it until it becomes the ‘one’ again.
Acccompanied by an ensemble of highly reputable musicians, Debasish Mukherjee (tabla), Lucy Rahman (vocals), Alastair Morgan (Cello)
Kathak is fundamentally a storytelling form that traces its origins to the nomadic bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathakars or storytellers. The name is derived from the Sanskrit word Katha-meaning story, and Kathakar in Sanskrit means the person who tells a story. Its form today contains traces of temple and ritual dances, and the influence of the bhakti movement.
Age guidance: 6+ (A creche will be provided throughout the duration of the performance)
