  • About

    'A Leap of Faith'- An old journey with a new name, a much needed escape.

    We are a group of people heading towards a new 'us', not to make a change but to start from the very beginning. It can be called a cultural forum, to be precise, where we have gathered from different genres of art forms.

    Takht is a renaissance. It's more about holding on to the old but with the essence of the new. It is a place where young minds come together with kindling hope. A hope of taking a leap towards the infinite. A leap of hope that kindles for eternity. The rest is for you to decide.

Performance

Saanjh, was the third dance production presented by Takht. In most representations of the legendary love story of Radha-Krishna, seldom has the pivotal account of Rukmini been considered. The entire idea of Saanjh was to try and understand how a wife perceives her husband’s celebrated relationship that has transcended generations after generations. Saanjh is a synonym for Shyaam, another name of Lord Krishna. Takht presented this iconic love story not through the general narrative (as we know it) but through the lens of Rukmini who had the legal recognition but not ( never) the social emancipation. This was staged on 19th March, 2017 at Uttam Manch.
