Information

Mehek is an enchanting exploration of the human heart – its desires, courages, and resiliences – masterfully brought to life by the artistry of Aakash Odedra and Aditi Mangaldas, the great South Asian dancers of their respective generations.

This captivating performance gives a voice to an unspoken and overlooked love story. Centred around a mature woman and a younger man, the dance delves deep into their intricate characters, challenging norms and redefining the very essence of love. Derived from the Hindi word for fragrance, the title alludes to the enduring power of memory and the essence of love itself. Aditi Mangaldas, dancing the first ever duet of her 50-year career, and Aakash Odedra weave a narrative that celebrates love in all its forms: raw, authentic, and infinitely resonant.

Aakash Odedra Company is an associate company of Birmingham Hippodrome.
