About

This Kathak dance ballet will pay a tribute to the Hindu mystic saint Meerabai. It will sketch her life through the kaleidoscope of songs and dances that have been immortalized by millions. All songs are writings of Meerabai herself and original music has been recorded in India. Each scene will depict a different aspect of Meerabai’s life immersed in devotion, longing, love, passion and surrender. Each song will also highlight a different aspect of pure dance as well as abhinaya (story-telling).
Music for the performance is written Brij Joshi, with dialogues by Alekh Jha, choreography and direction by Kriti Rakesh and dances by students of Aakriti Kathak Academy.
