As one of the leading contemporary South Asian dance and music companies in the UK, we have an international reputation for presenting Kathak dance in a contemporary context, without diluting its integrity. For us, it is a constantly evolving language, perfect for telling people’s stories and reflecting on the world. Our music is rooted in classical Indian traditions but branches into innovative developments with a range of styles including HipHop, Folk and Jazz.

We are passionate about the power of dance and music to open up new perspectives, explore emotions and empower audiences.

Productions

Our award-winning productions are rooted in Kathak and Indian classical music but draw on contemporary influences to create distinctive, relevant and accessible artistic experiences for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. We tour internationally to theatres, arts centres and festivals, as well as unconventional spaces, including schools, libraries, parks and museums.

We love to collaborate and work with partner organisations and individuals to create bespoke performances and events. Sonia has choreographed and directed dance for film and music videos, ‘flash mob’ performances, mass participatory shows, festivals and cross-artform projects.
