Ravi Bhatt, the local Horse-Dancer, stands outside the courtyard of his home in the Kathputli Colony, while his wife cooks inside. Located in northwest Delhi, Kathputli is inhabited by approximately 2,000 performing artists, practicing traditional art forms such as marionette puppetry, juggling, magic, acrobatics, dance and music. Many have travelled all over the world showcasing their abilities, but they still choose to remain living in this slum, which is one of the most impoverished in the city.
