Rising – Launceston

An elegant and powerful contemporary dance work


Rising by the Aakash Odedra Company is an elegant and powerful contemporary dance work by award-winning British dancer Aakash Odedra. Performed with grace and passion, Rising is a beautiful reflection of sound, movement and spirit.

A protégé of international dance sensation Akram Khan, Odedra is inspired by South Asian classical dance and the disciplines of Kathak, interpreted in an innovative and accessible style.

Rising contains four solo dances, three of which were developed for Odedra by internationally acclaimed contemporary dance choreographers Akram Khan, Russell Maliphant and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui alongside an astounding piece created by Odedra himself.

Nritta Choreographed and with music arranged by Aakash Odedra
