Dancers Speak Out

"Understanding Sita was such an interesting task.  I had to get to know her as not just a character from the Ramayana, but as a woman.  Also I had to find my way as an actor for that scene with Ravana which was so tough to communicate, but so real for anyone who has had to fight for self-expression." 

Nili Shah, 2015


"Dance goes beyond movement when the mind is brought in.  I love dancing the life of a radical, 12th century poet from India...it lifts me into another world."

Anila Kumari, 2012


"I like the challenge of bringing martial arts, which is my area really, to the rhythm and grace of dance."

Khilton Nongmaithan, 2015
