Katha Dance Theatre is pleased to announce the upcoming revival of one of its classic repertory works, Black Candle. The new production is set to premiere at the Southern Theater June 3 – 5, 2022.
Based on the award-winning poetry of Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni and featuring all-new choreography by Rita Mustaphi, Black Candle combines the elegant medium of Kathak dance with text and music to evoke female joy, love, pain and resilience. Telling stories of triumph and bravery, it pays tribute to the strength and tenacity shown by the women of Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan in the face of adversity such as sexism, misogyny and repressive cultural norms.
