Sanjukta Sinha is one of India’s leading Kathak artists, known for her technical expertise and immense artistry. She has always strived to create a new idiom of Kathak as a performing art, one that represents a changing world even as it cherishes its roots.
Through Kin, Sanjukta, whose name means ‘bonding together’, explores the ties that we forge outside of us, and the ones that get built, unknowingly, inside us as well.
The triple-bill performance brings together contemporary expressions for a thought-provoking experience.
