A co-production of Chhandika, the Peabody Essex Museum and MITHAS. Musical accompaniment by George Ruckert. Join us for an exceptional opportunity to watch, learn from and speak with Pandit Chitresh Das, renowned Kathak dance master. Pandit Das will begin with a short performance highlighting both his mastery of traditional Kathak and his innovative talent. He will continue with a lecture/demonstration through which the audience will be introduced to the rhythms and intricacies of Kathak dance and the instruments that accompany it. The event will be followed by a “Meet the Artist” reception which will include chai (spiced tea) and Indian sweets. Be prepared for what the Washington Post has called “a remarkable journey!”
