I believe that the arts are an inherent part of any society. They exist to open up imaginations about possible ways of being, living and seeing, and for creating a more empathetic, human, connected world. This is at the root of any work I undertake personally or with artists and arts organisations in India and abroad.
Alongside, I also consistently try to reinvent my own relationship to the Indian classical form I have trained in – kathak. Experiences with artists from the contemporary dance and performance worlds in India and Europe have fundamentally changed me as an artist and sharpened a socio-political awareness, again asking me to connect my world with the world at large.
