Description

“I can never say I was born to dance,” she says with a subtle hint of pride. Yet for this very reason, Kumudini Lakhia went on to become one of the great modern innovators of North Indian classical dance. Though she studied Kathak throughout her life, her path to professional dance was shaped more by circumstance than tradition. Her work, criticized thirty years ago as sacrilege, is now considered classic, and continues to inspire novel approaches to the dance form.

Told through the refracted lens of writer and dance student, Movement in Stills offers a unique blend of biography and personal impression.

About the Author

Reena Shah is a writer living in Washington D.C. She was a Fulbright Scholar in India from 2001––2003, where she studied and researched Kathak dance. A former school teacher, she works in the non-profit sector in the fields of arts education and disability.

 
 

Praise

"…a diligent effort to capture the life and times of a gifted dancer who has shown the world the contemporary face of Kathak. Reader-friendly and sincere, it brings a refreshing whiff of fresh air, as it were, to the biography genre."
—Sunil Kothari, dance critic
