Sanjukta Sinha photo Devansh Jhaveri for Brochure

One of India’s leading Kathak artists of her generation, and a stellar disciple of the legendary Kumudini Lakhia, Sanjukta Sinha is known for her technical expertise and immense artistry. Rooted yet modern, Sanjukta aims to create a new idiom of Kathak as a performing art, one that is an arresting blend of the traditional and contemporary.
Angika, Journeys in Love, choreographed by Ms. Lakhia—and including music by the renowned Gundecha brothers—is a suite of dances that explores Sufi concepts of love of the divine. Sanjukta takes us from hope and longing to anguish and joy on a journey that is both contemporary and eternal.

Pre-Show Lec-Dem by co-curator Rajika Puri at 6:00 p.m.
Chat & chai with the artists after the performances.
