LA DANZA KHATAK
La Danza Kathak è una forma di danza classica indiana settentrionale che si è evoluta nella pianura gangetica Indo durante il periodo dell’epica Mahabharata. La parola Kathak derivata da Katha o dai kathakar significa “Storyteller”. Ha una lunga storia, un viaggio dal cortile del tempio alla corte reale, poi sotto le ragazze nautch e ora nella moderna sala concerti. Durante il suo percorso, questa forma di ballo ha percorso diversi cambiamenti socio-politici ed economici grazie alla quale è stata arricchita dalla cultura islamica e indù. Nella parte ritmica di questa forma di ballo il repertorio speciale è conosciuto come il “footwork” che è simile al Tap e al Flamenco del mondo occidentale. Quindi, dalle testimonianze storiche, si è scoperto che questo bellissimo repertorio si è diffuso nei paesi occidentali dall’India attraverso questa forma di danza. Coloro che sono interessati a partecipare al laboratorio potranno godere del sapore di Kathak con il simile schema ritmico di Flamenco e Tap Dance.
