A Kathak Performance by Rachna Nivas
Presented by Chhandam Nritya Bharati

Rachna Nivas will take the audience on a thrilling journey of Kathak dance, music, rhythm, and drama.

An exquisite display of tayari (stunning technique in footwork, pirouettes and movement), layakari (virtuosity of complex rhythms), khoobsurti and nazakat (beauty and subtlety), and abhinaya (the art of storytelling). Known for her depth of emotions, Nivas will include a gripping rendition of Sita Haran – the timeless story that shows the immense courage of a woman who is continually a pawn. Featuring live music accompaniment by Debashish Sarkar (vocal), Jayanta Banerjee (sitar) and Satyaprakash Misra (tabla).
