Katha Dance Theatre kicks off the Cowles Center performing arts season with a form of meditation that aims to evoke euphoria in both dancers and audience members. The spinning body in Sufi dancing seeks an ecstatic state and reflects the planets orbiting the sun. KDT’s founder, Rita Mustaphi, brings her own choreographic voice to this ancient form, traditionally practiced only by men, with live music composed by Dr. Pooja Goswami Pavan.
