Across, Not Over
Across, Not Over engages with the kathak dance form in an essentially material way. The work fragments the kathak body and re-presents it in a newly-assembled poetics. It challenges the verticality of the form and the hierarchy of the feet. The exploration questions and re-frames notions of classicism and beauty by presenting the dancing body as an image of itself.
