HYBRID is a mixed repertory of contemporary dance, traditional kathak dance, and live music. Featuring Naina Roychowdhury Green (Kathak dancer), Jeff Berman (musician), and Shana Simmons Dance (SSD) company collaborators, this interactive performance will engage you through rhythmic demonstrations, contemporary improvisations, and lighthearted SSD repertory.

"Simmons’ level of choreographic sophistication is what sets her apart from other dance-makers of her generation," according to Adrienne Barr Totino.

Green's unique style of Lucknow and Jaipur schools of Kathak "evokes a soft and subtle restraint combined with sharp lines, percussive footwork, and evocatively emotional storytelling." Berman will join SSD playing the unique sounds of the Udu drum and Dulcimer (a fretted string instrument), to bring the melody of hands-on clay and the rhythm of fingers on strings to the mix. A blend of live music, percussive dancing/speaking, and energetic dance, come engage your senses and see a blend of cultural backgrounds through dance and music!
