Movements and Stills is an experimental idea based on challenging the physical energies to create a contemporary dance piece. The vocabulary of Kathak has innumerable patterns of lyrical movements- at times slow, at times crisp. The structure of the dance is based on different taals, and the rhythmic composition ends on the sam, or the first beat of any given taal with a position of still, thereby forming of a static pose. The name of the production is derived from the style of Kathak, which is designed around movements and stills.
