“full of vibrant energy...uplifting and highly enjoyable” (Londondance.com)
Ekalya (meaning ‘solo’ or ‘the one’) is a beautifully intimate crafting of dance and live music from Sonia Sabri, a leading light in the world of Indian Kathak dance.
Kathak is an exhilarating dance experience: an astounding display of precise footwork, eloquent gesture, rapid turns and intricate, heart-pounding rhythms. Internationally acclaimed for her electric stage presence and distinctive personal style, Sonia revisits the classical roots of Kathak in a high-impact performance which embraces a rich, joyful spirit and builds to a heart-pounding rhythmic crescendo.
This stunning production features evocative live music from an ensemble of musicians including sitar, vocal, and tabla from the world renowned maestro Sarvar Sabri.
“Such an incredible musicality, it was impossible not to gaze in wonder and adoration…An uplifting crescendo of music and dance” (Dance Europe)
