Conceptualized and created by Neetika Sharma, Reeti is a dance film that explores the congruence of Kathak & Aztec dance cultures of India and Mexico, respectively. The film was created as part of a choreography facilitation project led by Neetika - Katha Ras Dance Lab in 2020 and was supported by the Canada Council for the Arts. Embedded in deep research and the artist's lived experiences, the film follows a ritualistic approach to the choreographic design, adding to its unique flavour that stands in harmony with both the cultures. A cross disciplinary dance project, the film has original and traditional Indian and Mexican music, dynamic lighting design and authentic traditional costumes.
