Leela Dance

Leela Dance

Bringing together the world’s leading Kathak artists to charter new and unprecedented directions in Kathak dance, Leela Dance presents the exclusive premiere of their latest work Son of the Wind. This tour-de-force kathak dance drama brings to life the Ramayana's hidden hero. Hanuman, the son of the mighty wind god, through his mischievous ingenuity and indomitable vigor, proves to be an integral force in the rescue of the kidnapped princess Sita and the defeat of the arrogant King Ravan. Told through dramatic storytelling, powerful movement, and exquisite costume design and lighting, this production exposes the contemporary relevance of a timeless story while capturing the hearts of all.
