Considered a maverick in her country, the choreographer has consistently broken ground with her visionary merging of classic and contemporary Indian dance styles. Unafraid to confront social and present-day concerns, her eloquent and dynamic work is characterised by percussive footwork, narrative gestures and dizzying spins.
Celebrated Indian dance maker Aditi Mangaldas imaginatively infuses the ancient art form kathak with 21st-century sound, rhythm and light. Seven dancers including Mangaldas are joined by three musicians for a startling rich and intricate piece that emerges from the depths of the body, exploring its fragility, disintegration and renewal. On Inter_rupted, she collaborates with Fabiana Piccioli, much admired for her striking lighting designs and winner of the Knight of Illumination Award.
