Chhandam School of Kathak presents Leela Dance Collective's Los Angeles premiere of Son of the Wind, a kathak dance drama that follows the trials and adventures of Hanuman as he helps rescue the princess Sita from the clutches of Ravan, King of Lanka. Featuring a cast of all female Kathak dancers, Son of the Wind is powerful as it turns history on its head by presenting a full cast of women playing both male and female roles, bringing a contemporary spin to India's ancient epic the Ramayana. This dance drama shows women in the role of male warriors, challenging modern day perceptions of Kathak dance as well as a history that typically showcased only male dancers.
