Yaatra juxtaposes time-honored choreography with contemporary work, perfectly illustrating Kalanidhi Dance’s own journey through the ancient yet relevant world of Kuchipudi dance.  The evening is united by the cultural threads that bind the dancers to their art while supporting their expansion into non-traditional spaces. Yaatra marked the first time the Joyce SoHo had presented a Kuchipudi dance company.


“The Kalanidhi combination of bright energy, full-bodied sweetness and rapid precision; its wealth of multidirectional focus, physical detail and expressive nuance; the abundant spectacle of its groupings and geometries; its multilayered connection to its music; the beautiful pliancy of the spine; the vitality of the feet and arms: these make for a rare amalgam of prime dance virtues… this is a company I long to see again soon.”
