Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore is best known as a poet and philosopher. However, his creative talent extended well beyond this, to music, to painting, and to dance.

In Tagore Dance, Kaberi explores how Rabindranath’s thinking about dance evolved and led him to create his own distinct and original dance form (Rabindranritya). Starting from his first exposure to social dances in England as a teenager, Kaberi traces the history of the Tagore dance form through to the major dance-dramas he created in the last decade of his life.

Based on over ten years of research by Kaberi within and outside India for her PhD thesis, Tagore Dance includes behind-the-scenes stills from the Tagore dance film trilogy.

Coming soon in eBook and paperback – cover design by Debangana Banerjee. ISBN-13: 978-1438287935.
