Mandala Arts brings the stories of Krishna to life through two streams of classical Indian dance: Kathak and Bharat Natyam. The lyricism, pirouettes and gliding movements of Kathak offer a contrast to the structure, concision and geometric delivery of Bharat Natyam. Dancing Krishna gracefully merges the two forms; it is a dynamic display of expressive storytelling and dazzling rhythmic patterns. Accompanied by a live ensemble of traditional musicians, the dance artists break apart and meld the two different styles, bearing the harmony and tension of movement through Krishna’s story.
