Outreach is at the heart of our work and 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. We start making a work in the hearts of communities. 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 inherent issues.
AKDC also uses the physicality of Kathak as means to approach issues such as depression, dementia, exercise of physical well being.
