Menaka Thakkar Dance Company

MTDC-KALANIDHI DanceStreams 2015 Launch

Launch | Lancement

Toronto ON
March 15 mars 2015

In the Further Soil” illustrates the journey that MENAKA
THAKKAR has forged in founding the first professional school of Indian dance
in Canada as well as forming the first professional Indian dance performance
company which became the first culturally diverse dance organization to
receive funding from Canada Council for the Arts.  The title of this
production comes from a poem by Rabindranath Tagore in which he speaks of the
Banyan Tree that not only grows in its own soil but reaches its roots to the
further soil which is an apt metaphor for the growth of Indian dance in
Canada through the activities of Ms.Thakkar. The 2015 encore show will
feature 20 company dancers and students from the school performing in
classical Bharatanatyam, Odissi and contemporary works. Presented by Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, 506 Bloor Street West.
