Kathak, Identity and the Hindu Woman

In this essay I aim to look critically at Indian Kathak dance and explore to what extent it reinforces traditional religious and gender roles in Hindu society. I will look more closely at the Hindu religion and the search for the divine with reference to Radha and Krishna and aim to link these concepts to the cultural vision. I will also endeavour to highlight why a detailed knowledge of the genre is needed to fully experience its spiritual and cultural intention.
