International Summer Art Academy – July 30, 2014

The subsequent day of shows under the International Summer Art Academy 2014 was devoted to Indian culture. Presentations of ensembles began with three vocal compositions performed by students of the AIPA Institute – “BRAHMASWAR” ensemble. In the second part of the programme, dance set ups in the classic Kathak style were presented by dancers from the “Alaknanda Sanskriti” ensemble. This dance derives from temple ceremonial and was developed at the Mughal court. The word “Kathak” means to tell a story – “katha-vachan”; thence, dancers use proper gestures and movements to recount a plot related to various aspects of Hindu culture.
