Partnership Performances


Nilima Devi and Priya Pawar, two of the UK's most renowned dance exponents of Kathak and Odissi presented the dance double-bill Milap with live musical accompaniment from some of the UK's most respected classical Indian musicians.

Weaving together rhythmic improvisation, poetry and mythological stories combined with spectacular expressive movements choreographed in a duet form, Milap articulately illustrated the subtle aesthetic distinctions between these two magical classical dance styles from North and Eastern India.


This exciting Indian dance group, performing a wide range of classical, folk and creative dances of North India developed out of the Asian Dance Animateur Project in Leicester between 1985 and 1990, giving countless performances for festivals and community functions.

Formed with the aim of creating new Indian dance work and to present innovative items of classical and folk dances of North India, the group also had the objective of supporting an encouraging young dancers to get involved in South Asian dance activities and to develop their skills in this field.
