Takademe

About Takademe

Description

The complex, tightly woven rhythms of Indian Kathak dance are deconstructed and abstracted in this percussive, fast-paced work.

Clear shapes and propulsive jumps mimic the vocalized rhythmic syllables of Sheila Chandra's jazzy score.

"…[a] fast-moving excursion into rhythmic exotica."
- Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times, 1999
