Contemporary presentation of the Indian classical dance form of Kathak.
“…the music illuminated various Indian rhythms in enticingly offbeat ways. (Jin) Won’s musicality transformed her dancing into something primal. The tension between wildness and control was a hallmark of Pradhanica.” – New York Times

Inspired by the pervasive power of rhythm, Pradhanica explores how rhythm unites dance and music. Fast-paced footwork, dizzying spins, and dynamic drumming come together in this contemporary presentation of the Indian classical dance form of Kathak. In Pradhanica, named for female “leader” or “head,” the dancer demonstrates her mastery over rhythm. Choreographer, dancer, and percussionist Jin Won – described as “exuberant” by The New York Times – collaborates with renowned Indian music maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil to create percussion driven work that has a transformative effect.
