Ektatva: A fusion of Bharatnatyam, Kathak, & Odissi Dance

About the Show: 

Ektatva, meaning Oneness, is an exploration of the oneness across the three distinct, ancient Indian classical art forms. The show has been enthralling audiences worldwide and is now coming to the bay area!

About the Artists:

Uma Dogra – (Kathak) Uma Dogra has enthralled audiences for nearly three decades. Endowed with a fascinating personality and highly imaginative mind, she brings to Kathak not only a mastery of technique, but also a total immersion in dance, profound confidence, and a joyous spontaneity that infuses her performance with rare intensity and authority. Her work expresses subtle distinction between the literal translation of the lyrics and mature, evolved transmutation of music into movements. 

Daksha Mashruwala – (Odissi) A performer, choreographer, and teacher, Daksha Mashruwala has been performing all over Indian and abroad for the last three decades. Disciple of Odissi maestro late Guru Kelucharan Mahopatra, Dakshaji has been carrying her guruji’s tradition with commitment and perseverance. She has been honored by The Center of World Music, San Diego, and the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Ottawa. 

Vaibhav Arekar – (Bharatnatyam) Vaibhav Arekar belongs to the new generation of intense dance artists, whose art and life is guided by the vision of promoting, producing, and projecting Indian classical dance as a contemporary art. Utmost dedication and dynamism is imbued in his profile as a dancer, teacher, choreographer, producer, actor, educationist, and an administrator.
