Kathak Choreographer Rina Singha, along with Dora Award Recipient Danny Grossman, invite you to experience the joy and excitement of Kathak rhythms beyond the fast footwork, with the world premiere of CIRCLE OF BRICKS – Rhythms of Kathak Dance and The Tower, a contemporary retelling of the story of Babel at the Fleck Dance Theatre.

Circle of Bricks  uses the traditional patterns and intricate technique of kathak, the classical dance of the temples and courts of North India. The work progresses from the slow, undulating Thaat poses to the fast and intricate rhythm Tukre, while exploring the versatility of the rhythmic elements of kathak through innovative movement patterns, which highlight the joy and excitement that comes from allowing rhythm to decorate and guide body movement.

The Tower, a contemporary retelling of the story of Babel, is co-directed by internationally acclaimed choreographer, Danny Grossman. This piece features celebrated dance artist, Eddie Kastrau, as the lead character, Nimrod.
