Searching for something to brighten up January? Look no further than Pagrav Dance when they bring Aunusthan, a fast-moving and vibrant display of classical Indian dance to The Lowry.

A celebration of neo-classical Indian dance and music, and perfectly illustrative of the multi-faceted nature of kathak, Aunusthan sees seven dancers and four expert musicians propel the audience on a dynamic journey through riotous rhythms and movement.

Expect rigorous choreography and polished performance in this energetic and irresistible work. Featuring a cast of talented British Asian dance artists – all trained impeccably by Pagrav Dance Company – we think that Aunusthan offers the perfect showcase for the bright future of kathak in the UK.

Refreshing, energising and colourful, and running at just 60 minutes, Aunusthan brings high-octane performance – the perfect kick-start to 2024. And if you like the sound of this performance, the Aakash Odedra Dance Company are presenting their captivating performance, Mehek at The Lowry in the spring too. Lovers of South Asian dance rejoice – get both shows in your diary.
