Aditi Mangaldas Dance Company – The Drishtikon Dance Foundation (India)

Choreographer - Aditi Mangaldas

Premiered in 2013

Duration - 1 hour 40 minutes with an intermission

The dance company of Aditi Mangaldas strives to achieve excellence in the performance of classical Indian Kathak dance, placing it in a modern context and enriching it with relevant meanings.

The performance "Within" explores the innermost spaces of the human soul, where humanity and cruelty, masculinity and femininity, good and evil, closely intertwined, are stored in anticipation of reflection and expression. The performance was noted by critics and enthusiastically accepted by the public at international festivals in India, Romania, The Great Britain, Australia, Georgia.

"Choreographing ‘Within’ has been a very different experience from my last few works. It has been about delving into the self and exploring our deepest emotions, however disturbing they may be. That is the journey I invite you to take with us." Aditi Mangaldas
