Katha Dance Theatre presents two works in the tradition of Kathak. An Indian dance form that originated in Hindu temples to portray epic tales and poetry through beautiful, intricate movement.

Ritusamhara – The Seasons was inspired by poetry written 17 centuries ago by the great Kalidasa. This romantic, rhythmic story follows a couple’s evolving emotions as they journey through the changing seasons. Original music composed by Sharat Chandra Srivastava of New Delhi, India. Choreography by Katha Dance Theatre founder and artistic director Rita Mustaphi. Performed by Katha Dance Theatre company members: Rita Mustaphi, Anurag Sharma, Nivedita SahniMukta Sathe, Monica Singh, Sarika Haris, Rupa Nair, along with two apprentices, Kamala Nair and Madhulika Srikanth.

Baromase Tero Parbon is a collection of dances portraying a few of the traditional festivals that celebrate the 12 months of the Hindu calendar. Performed by hidden talents from the Minnesota Bengali community.
