Description

MAIACA invites you to an enchanting evening of KATHAK & FLAMENCO with Sudeshna Maullick and Ely Cardenal.

MAIACA is proud to bring to you for the first ever time in Miami a fusion dance performance of Kathak and Flamenco.

In an effort to build cultural sensitivity to two totally different cultures yet so similar in many ways.

KATHAK - a species of classical Indian dance that favors gesture and storytelling & FLAMENCO - Latin dance form. The shared elements of the two forms are undeniable. The performance will demonstrate that, centuries ago, gypsies from India resettled in Andalusia, planting the roots of Flamenco, which evolved in its own manner. There are many similarities between kathak and Flamenco and the artists will highlight the same. It would be interesting to see how dance forms, like so much else, migrate from continent to continent .

At first glance it is clear that Flamenco and Kathak have much in common; they both employ improvisation, similar lyrical upper body movements and percussive footwork. With an obvious difference being that the Kathak artist dances barefoot and wears heavy ankle bells while the Flamenco dancer wears shoes. Live music and complex rhythmic cycles are central components to both art forms. In Flamenco, guitar, singing, clapping and a drum accompany the dancer. In Kathak, the musical accompaniments often include sitar, tabla, sarangi and vocals. In addition, both Flamenco and Kathak have Indian and Muslim cultural and religious influences.


Come enjoy this Unique performance building a bridge between two cultures.


The performance will be followed by a delectable meal and an opportunity to meet and socialize.
