Roshni (from the Persian word meaning light or brilliance) is an intimate crafting of dance and live music, made up of three distinctive and engaging dance pieces: The Call, The Light and The Wave which explore the highs and lows of life today.
The audience are taken on an emotional journey, through wordless storytelling, eclectic music, percussive dance and upbeat audience interaction, Roshni is both deeply moving and gloriously entertaining.
Just as improvisation is the heartbeat of jazz, improvisation is considered a core part of a solo Kathak dance performance – consequently no performance of Roshni is the same! It is the perfect first introduction to those who have never experienced South Asian dance and something quite different for connoisseurs. Roshni beautifully demonstrates the connection between music and dance.
