Rachna Nivas and Rina Mehta of the Leela Dance Collective bring their energy, dynamism and flair to this year's Drive East with movement, rhythm, music, and storytelling.
Traditional and innovative, their performance explores the boundaries of Kathak dance.
Joining them in a guest appearance is tap star Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards for a special performance of an excerpt from SPEAK, the groundbreaking Kathak-Tap collaboration.
The performance is brought to life by a musical ensemble featuring some of India's finest classical artists: Jayanta Banerjee (sitar), Vaibhav Mankad (vocals), and Satyprakash Mishra (tabla).
