KNMA is back with another exciting performance as they celebrate the beginning of a new cultural season on Saturday, October 7, 2023, at Sunder Nursery in New Delhi. Visitors will experience an incredible Double Bill from award-winning dancer and choreographer Aakash Odedra featuring two solo performances titled, Echoes and Constellation, transcending the boundaries of time and space and uniting the wisdom of the past with the innovation of the future.
A mesmerising evening featuring two pieces is choreographed by acclaimed artists, Aditi Mangaldas and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Each work draws on Aakash’s traditional background in Kathak and Bharatanatyam to create a distinct flavour of contemporary and South Asian Dance. This performance offers a rare opportunity to experience an astonishing evening of dance by one of the most talented British South Asian dancers of this generation.
Kiran Nadar, Chairperson, Kiran Nadar Museum of Art commented, “We are thrilled to begin this year’s cultural season with Aakash Odedra, whose artistic brilliance knows no bounds and captivates audiences worldwide. This performance exemplifies our commitment to celebrating diversity in culture and cultivating a deep love for various art forms, which serves as a powerful tool for connecting people.”
