Kavi, a performance featuring Contemporary dance & Hindustani Vocals
3307 Hancock Drive
Austin TX, 78731
Machado's choreography is driven by her desire to express bhakti (devotion) in its simplest form, action. The work is inspired by the writings of Purandaradasa, Andal, and Muktabai.
These devotional writings charge the classical and contemporary dancing bodies in the space.
Beautifully textured, the show weaves together live Classical singing, non-traditional music, and elements of Western Contemporary & Indian classical forms such as Bharata Natyam and Kathak. Kavi presents an unconventional answer to how the essence of classical art might be expressed in contemporary performance.
Dancers & Creative Collaborators : Emily Pry, Gayathri Prasanth, Mysti Jace Pride, Preya Mangalat Patel, and Rujuta Narwekar
