Outreach

Katha Dance Theatre seeks to engage the local community with cross-cultural workshops and performances.

Historical Repertory

All KDT repertory works are choreographed or co-choreographed by Rita Mustaphi, who founded the Company in 1987. One of Rita’s aims in founding KDT was to embrace the duality of traditional and contemporary. Accordingly, her choreographic works preserve the Kathak tradition, ensuring its enduring legacy, while also building on that legacy by incorporating cross-cultural influences and diverse collaborations.
