This production is an experiment with four pieces inKathak, adapting the dance form to not only explore varied narrative styles but also emphasizes its vast breadth and versatility, dipping into the ancient Puranicstory , dramatic in essence, to present a ballad, Mohini.

Laya Anulaya (la-ei Anu-la-ei), an indepth technical study, is an inward facing narrative, a dialogue between the percussionist.

Panchatva, explores the connections between the elements and human senses, re-imagining theNritta (pure dance) aspect of Kathak in tandem with Digital Media.
