Menaka Thakkar Dance presents Chitra — Warrior Princess (Toronto)

Toronto, Canada

Menaka Thakkar Dance presents:


A message from Ms. Thakkar:

It is my pleasure to invite you to come and see my newest choreography at Premiere Dance Theatre or the Markham Theatre for Performing Arts in June.

Chitra: Warrior Princess is a feminist retelling of the classic story of Chitrangada that was taken from an episode from the famous epic Mahabharata and further inspired by a play by Rabinidranath Tagore.

For those of you who enjoy classical Indian dance, I think that you will be intrigued by the combination of Bharatanatyam and Odissi with a bit of the martial art Kallari Payattu that I have used in the choreography for Chitra: Warrior Princess.

Performances will be held at Premiere Dance Theatre at Harbourfront Centre on June 2 ,3, & 4 and also there will be one show at The Markham Theatre for Performing Arts on June 24. Tickets will be on sale at Harbourfront on Saturday May 6th and at Markham Theatre by mid to late May.

For information about the show, please look at the Menaka Thakkar Dance Company website. our

I hope that you will be able to join us!

Menaka Thakkar,
Artistic Director
