Dance Improvisation in Stockholm city

Indian Arts are usually presented in a predefined format, choreographed and set to rythm, melody as well as depicting a particular emotional flavor or mood. Improvising within this language is the attempt to create an immediate connection in time and space, a free canva to manifest and inspire the ambience of the performing moment. An  endeavour to uplift the moods of the Stockholm city and to introduce Indian Arts to the common audience. 

In Collaboration with Pauline Reibell  on Bharatanatyam                                                                                             Jul 2021
