Kathak-flamenco collaboration for World Dance Day 2013
RUNG was the name of the show directed and conceived by Anurekha Ghosh. I performed at ICCR in Kolkata, a well-established venue for theatre and dance and performed to a full house and was a great adventure for me creatively in exploration of Indian links to flamenco...once more. The collaboration was a trio; Anurekha dancing Kathak, Subanka Debnath on tabla and myself dancing flamenco. Exploring beats and links, finding the ties both literal and figurative between the cultures. The show also saw awards to dance photographer Prashant Arora and young dance artists from regional areas and living 'at risk' in and around West Bengal. It was a fun night!!
THE STATESMAN – CELEBRATING DANCE Meeting of Times brought together Anurekha and Annalouise Paul in a sort of a jugalbandi with Sukanta Debnath on tabla keeping rhythm. Read more click on link.
