is a monthly performance and education series that began in 2002. It started as
an offshoot of the Pandit Shambhu Maharaj Kathak Academy, with the idea of introducing
the students to classical and traditional art forms from all over India. These
performances, that are open to the general public, as well, are then often followed
up by workshops for the students.
of the last one year this series has grown and now includes a short performance
by a young student of the academy as well as invites outstanding kathak dancers
from other institutions to be part of an exchange programme.
the past, artists who have been part of this series, have included:
Dr. Kapila Vatsayan, Sh. Sadanam Balakrishnan, Smt. Madhavi Mudgal
and Smt. Shanti Sharma to name a few.
Pehchaan is held every month at the Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road,
and is open to anyone who may be interested. For more information
