Award-winning dancer, choreographer Menaka Thakkar (Walter Carsen Prize 2012, Governor General’s Life Achievement Award 2013) presents the world premiere of In Search of the Other Ganesh. Using bharatanatyam, martial arts, and modern dance, Thakkar takes the famous Hindu legend of the young god whose head was cut off and replaced with the head of a baby elephant and extends it through the eyes of a child. The full evening performance includes excerpts from the company’s extensive contemporary and classical repertoire. The performance will be live streamed to remote areas outside of Toronto.

Governor General’s Award-winner Menaka Thakkar is a powerhouse! With a career spanning 50 years, she continues to blend classical and contemporary styles into rhythmic new creations performed by her professional dance company.
