"Fleet-footed choreography, along with music which illuminated Indian rhythms in enticingly off-beat ways. (Jin) Won's musicality transformed her dancing into something primal. The tension between wildness and control was a hallmark of Pradhanica.” –The New York Times
Dizzying spins, fast-paced footwork, immersive emotions, and dynamic drumming come together in this contemporary presentation of the Indian classical dance form of Kathak. Choreographer, percussionist, and solo dancer Jin Won demonstrates her mastery over rhythm, leading an ensemble comprising the Indian tabla, African djembe, Spanish cajon, and Indian sitar. Won collaborates with renowned Indian music maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil to create this percussion driven work that has a transformative effect. Together they delve deeply into how emotions are expressed solely through rhythm and movement, and explore the fundamental rhythmic connection between the dancer and music.
