I can never say I was born to dance, she says with a subtle hint of pride. Yet for this very reason, Kumudini Lakhia went on to become one of the great modern innovators of North Indian classical dance. Though she studied Kathak throughout her life, her path to professional dance was shaped more by circumstance than tradition. Her work, criticised thirty years ago as sacrilege, is now considered classic, and continues to inspire novel approaches to the dance form. Told through the refracted lens of writer and dance student, Movement in Stills offers a unique blend of biography and personal impression.
