Menaka’s “Indian Ballet” is considered one of the first approaches to the redefinition of dance in India at the beginning of the 20th century. Above all, her study of the Kathak style is read as a contribution to a revitalization of classical dance techniques and thus the rehabilitation of a classical repertoire of artistic forms of expression in the context of the formation of national identity of India. For her European tour, she had put together a program of various formats, which she had developed in India. Solo pieces alternated with smaller group choreographies. The main program consisted of one of Menaka’s so-called dance dramas. During the two-year tour, the ensemble kept this program largely unchanged, but occasionally varied individual items. Especially the musical ensemble had a freer hand in the choice of the instrumental solos. Sakhwawat Khan selected his solo items from his personal repertoire. In this way, the audience at the various venues made comparable – but quite unique listening-experiences. The program booklets and the reports of the reviewers provide information about which Menaka repertoire was performed in each case.
