Call to Artists: Kathak Mahotsav Canada

In Call to Artists on May 6, 2011 by danceumbrella

Deadline: June 6, 2011

 The Rina Singha Kathak Dance Organization is extending an invitation for senior and midcareer artists to perform at Kathak Mahotsav August 18, 19, and 20th 2011. 

Taking place at the Fairview Library Theatre, this annual weekend-long dance festival celebrates the art & beauty of Kathak through performances and workshops based on the historical roots of Kathak from the Hindu Temples of the Moghul Courts & beyond.

As a participant you would be playing a vital role in Rina Singha’s long time commitment to bring together Canadian Kathak artists so they can meet and share their ideas and experiences.  The Mahotsav’s goal is to help Canadian audiences gain a better understanding and appreciation of the art and aesthetics of Kathak.

 An honorarium will be provided for performances of 20 – 25 minutes (for senior artists), and 10 – 15 minutes (for midcareer artists).

 For artists interested in participating please send a short bio and a 5-minute video of your work to:
