TAAL (article first published : 2000-11-6)

The Playhouse Company will proudly host two leading KZN dance exponents of the kathak and bharata natyam dance styles in the South African premiere of their latest works Taal which will run in the Playhouse Drama from November 23 to 26.

Well-known for her appearances with the Siwela Sonke Dance Company, the charming and multi-talented Pravika Nandkishore will be accompanied by her most senior dancers in a production of new dance works which promise to be technically dazzling and inspiring. This intrepid dancer and teacher surprised Grahamstown National Arts Festival audiences with her effervescence and skill in 1999

No stranger either to Durban audiences is artist Anju Narsai of the KwaZulu Natal Dance Theatre stable.

Taal - or "rhythm" - is a sumptuous exploration of Indian music and dance which invites audiences to share in the centuries-old expression of classical Indian artistry. Pravika Nandkishore and Anju Narsai will be supported by a host of well-known musicians including Pregalathan Singarma, Richard Ellis, Vishen Kemraj, Rajive Mohan, Anil Sewpersad, Umesh Indarpersad, Selvin Subramoney and Charmaine Deol. They will be playing instruments ranging from congos and tabla, to bass guitar and the octopad.

Tickets R35 via TicketWeb outlets nationwide. Credit card bookings on (031) 369-9444.
