WAIS Presents Indian Dance
2001-02 Walton Arts & Ideas Series will present Kathak Dance
of North India at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 23, in the Walton Fine
Arts Center on campus.
Performed by the Katha Dance Theatre based in Minnesota,
this beautiful and graceful Indian classical dance is derived from the
word Katha, meaning story. This spontaneous art form is
characterized by rhythmic footwork, flowing gestures, colorful costumes
and the blending of music, dance and storytelling.
It is an art form which originated in the ancient
temples of India and eventually found its way to the royal courts. Today,
the Katha Dance Theatre is keeping these colorful traditions alive.
This fascinating evening of dance will take audience members on a journey
from the temples, to the royal palaces, to modern India where they will
discover the origins, as well as the future, of this exotic art. It
will be an adventure the whole family can enjoy.
Faculty, staff and students can receive one
free ticket to the performance.
