Chitresh Das Institute and ODC Theater present the World Premiere of Mantram, created by Artistic Director Charlotte Moraga in collaboration with renowned Sarode player and composer Alam Khan.  

Mantram simultaneously celebrates creative innovation and the kathak tradition with choreography and music that are experimental but based in the Indian classical art vocabulary.  It is a sonic and visual journey exploring how despite our bodies pulsating the rhythms of the world around us, have we become so disconnected. 

Mantra, or chant, is drawn from Vedanta—considered the world’s oldest, unbroken oral tradition.  Kathak dance’s percussive footwork, lyrical movement, and basis in spirituality, bound together through resonance and vibration, are Moraga’s focus for the choreography and Khan’s for the music. At its origin, Hinduism was a philosophy, sanatana dharma, meaning no beginning and no end. Moraga’s and Khan’s work will channel the vibration of mantra and its practice as a connection to nature and spirituality.
