Prayaas: an Endeavor in Kathak"
After the resounding success at 2013's Santa Cruz Fringe Festival, Antara Bhardwaj returns to Santa Cruz with another world premiere of "Prayaas: an Endeavor in Kathak."

Prayaas, which literally translates to 'attempt' or 'endeavor,' represents Bhardwaj's attempt to carry forward the tradition of Kathak after the passing of her Guru, Pandit Chitresh Das, earlier this year. Lightning footwork, swift pirouettes, dramatic story-telling, and a mellifluous voice are the trademarks of any performance by Bhardwaj. With Prayaas, she shares the stories and dances from her Guru's life, and how they inspired her to become the artist that she is. She continues to teach, and brings to the stage the next generation of young dancers she is currently training. Finally, Bhardwaj concludes with a new creation of hers, inspired by ghazal (songs of unrequited love) and Sufi music.  

Alongside Bhardwaj is an all-star accompaniment featuring Salar Nader on tabla, Pankaj Mishra on sarangi, Ben Kunin on sarod, and her Guru-sister, Farah Yasmeen Shaikh on recitation & manjira.
