In June 2018, KDT invited Kathak master Pandit Birju Maharaj to perform at St. Catherine University’s O’Shaugnessy Theatre. He was joined onstage by Grammy-winning musician Ustad Zakir Hussain, as well as other India-based musicians and Kathak disciples. The performance was the culmination of Maharaj’s week-long residency with KDT, which included workshops and master classes for KDT students and company members. Parampara represented a rare opportunity for those outside of the Kathak community (and for residents of the U.S. in general) to witness the work of one of the art form’s foremost experts.
