About

One of India’s most celebrated dance makers, Aditi Mangaldas is a maverick in her country, consistently breaking new ground with her combination of contemporary and classical choreography. Her intricately percussive footwork and wheeling spins are astonishing.

Within is a breathtaking group dance work in two parts. The first, Knotted, is richly layered contemporary Kathak, cinematic in scale and brimming with raw emotion from brutal events that have rocked contemporary India. The second, Unwrapped, is a stunning display of classical Kathak, driven by a live score featuring harmonium and vocals.

Revered by dance stars Akram Khan and his protégé, Aakash Odedra, Mangaldas is celebrated for the eloquence and energy she brings to the stage.
