786 is the total value of the letters in the Islamic phrase “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim,” which is commonly translated as, “In the name of God, most gracious, most compassionate.” This is a phrase that some Muslims will often say before beginning a significant endeavour. In this piece, Natasha explores the sacred in the everyday. She hopes to shift people’s misconceptions about Muslims, highlighting the positive aspects of this stigmatized community (communities really) including their artistic and creative sides.

Natasha Bakht is an Indian contemporary dancer and choreographer. She trained in Bharatanatyam under Menaka Thakkar for 20 years, touring internationally with her company. 

This performance is part of the Fall For Dance North festival. For tickets and more information visit ffdnorth.com.
