(Manesh Maharaj & Verushka Pather)

Verushka Pather and Manesh Maharaj are to produce their collaborative work, Poetry In Motion, in Durban to an intimate audience at the KZNSA Gallery on September 16.

“This special offering is the coming together of two of the world's most cherished and loved Indian classical dance forms and reflects our deep devotion to our respective dance styles whilst seamlessly weaving Bharata Natyam and Kathak into a connected whole,” the artistes explain.

The many shades of emotions that reside within poetry forms the core of this innovative presentation.

“Poetry In Motion was showcased at 'Festival Des Arts Indiens' in Rèunion this year and we look forward to sharing the success and beauty of this experience with artists and rasikas in Durban,” they add.

There will be one performance on September 16 at 18h00. Tickets R120. Early booking is advised as there are only 100 seats available.

The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
