Our outreach work is essential to us. It allows us to see how powerful our artform is when engaged purposefully; at the same time it helps us to realize that our work is beyond the stage of a theatre.
That is why we go to community centres, organisations, groups, and schools with the same intention and excitement as we would to an international dance stage. In fact, we start making a work in the hearts of communities where an issue may be targeted. Through pop up workshop/ performances we devise content by involvement of participants as collaborators. We have found dance and the arts in general, form a powerful weapon to fight many issues inherent in a challenging cultural diverse community.
AKDC also uses the physicality of Kathak as means to approach issues such as deperession, dementia. well being, exercise of physical and mental faculties.
