A Portrait of Classical Dance & Storytelling by Smt. Kasturi Mishra

This performance will feature Smt. Kasturi Mishra the Artistic Director of Gharana Arts. Born into a family of renowned Indian classical artists, she has emerged as one of India’s most enthralling and expressive Kathak dancers of her generation.  Kasturi has performed solo concerts to sold out audiences across north America including Ottawa, Winnipeg, Montreal and Halifax, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. At her debut performance in Ottawa, the Ottawa Citizen wrote

“The highlight of the evening was Kathak dancer Kasturi Mishra. She is quick and graceful as a bird. Her lovely, expressive face and flashing eyes draw you in; you don’t need to be Indian to understand the story she is telling.” – Ottawa Citizen
