Speak: Tap & Kathak Unite. The Leela Dance Collective presents their newest work, SPEAK at the Kahilu Theatre on February 16, 2020 at 2 PM featuring Rina Mehta, Rachna Nivas, Michelle Dorrance, and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards.
Indian Kathak dance and American tap dance, continents and ages apart, share parallel stories of struggle and perseverance. They come together in this sensational collaboration that is rhythm, poetry, storytelling, music and dance. The production features both a classical Hindustani ensemble led by sitar master and longtime Chitresh Das Dance Company music director Jayanta Banerjee and a jazz trio led by Carmen Staaf who performed at the Kahilu earlier this season.
