Altered Skin

The company blends together all my performance experiences including Bharatanatyam, contemporary dance, theatre, writing and a wide range of other artistic disciplines. The company has grown and discovered its unique brand of humour and Indian-dance derived physical theatre merging art forms and cultures from global perspectives to entertain, educate and empower.

What will you be working on as part of your residency?

I am exploring the translation of Bharatanatyam to non-Bharatanatyam trained bodies leading to an authentic hybridised movement language furthering my Bharatanatyam-derived physical theatre language. Through choreographic explorations driven by the emotional and narrative aspects of Bharatanatyam, my research will try and capture the dramatic content within the themes of my new work ‘Invisible Lines’.
