Reviews & Press

Camille LeFevre, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Performed with unfailing graciousness, Katha Dance Theatre takes an evocative art form and makes it vibrantly real.” … “The complexity and power of Katha Dance Theatre’s stories are fully realized in their dynamic, percussive dance sequences.”

Caroline Palmer, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Robinson and Mustaphi have forged a connection [between Gospel music and Kathak Dance]. His soaring vocals, backed by three divine singers and a tight band, were fitting accompaniment. The dancing had a delightful sense of weightlessness, surprising given Kathak’s grounded nature.”

Sheila Regan, Twin Cities Daily Planet

“The dancers from Katha Dance showed both their agility and technique and also their skill at storytelling through movement. Gesture and facial expression, in combination with the voiceover storytelling, create an experience that is both engaging and moving.“

The Octopus, Champaign IL

“Katha Dance Theatre is dazzlingly proficient in the dramatic and virtuosic style of Indian classical dance, while being adept of taking English speaking audiences into the literary wellsprings of classical Indian dance performances.”
