Jham! Is brought to you by Artistic Director of Srishti, Nina Rajarani MBE. An award-winning choreographer of classical Indian dance with 30 years’ experience as a dance-maker. She fuels traditions of Bharatanatyam and Kathak with contemporary artistic practice and ideas.
Rajarani’s latest outdoor work, Jham! is an upbeat, playful and energetic musical collaboration between dancers and musicians that uses creative improvisation – or “jamming” to initiate a rhythmic interplay between classical and modern forms of music and dance.
Jham! has a distinctly contemporary feel, with four musicians – including a beatboxer, a saxophonist and a traditional Karnatik vocalist – performing alongside four Kathak and Bharatanatyam dancers.
Performances at 12.30pm & 2.00pm each performance lasts approximately 25 minutes
