Travel on an abstract journey of human experience, artist Kesha Raithatha explores rejection, abandonment and loss in her stirring solo work Traces.
Repelling formal structures to build an extraordinary dance language, Raithatha purges the body of memory and traces of the past, to find herself without form and floating in flux. Traces is an urgent and vulnerable physical enquiry. Embodying Kathak and Contemporary movement, dancer and choreographer Kesha Raithatha creates work that experimentally reconsiders South Asian dance. Training and working as an independent artist between India and the UK since 2009, Raithatha is Associate Director of Aakash Odedra Company, Work Place Artist at The Place in London and a Curve Resident Creative at the Curve Leicester.
