About the room
A room Full of Stories
A widely popular dance art form in India. Sanskrit word ‘Katha’ meaning ‘story’ form Kathak or the storyteller. Patronized by Mughal emperors. Enjoyed by audiences. Fluid hand gestures or ‘mudras’ and vivid expressions meet to tell a story.
Elements at the Kathak room
An assortment of musical instruments. The dhol (drum), the peti (a portable piano of sorts) and the ghunghroos. Typically worn by Kathak dancers. Now adorn the walls of the room. Not all walls have ears, some speak music.
Watch these dancers painted on the walls come to life through rich use of colours. Be a part of their fluid dance story telling by staying put on the comforting bed.
The Saarangi chair is based on a traditional form of guitar. An instrument instrumental to Kathak. An integral part of the room. Sit in this chair. Be an audience to a spectacular performance.
