Stories excite me the most, inspiring me to create collaborative works with with international artists of different genres of music, dance, theatre, mime, circus, and puppetry, and work with different techniques of production and choreography using the structure of Bharatanatyam, an Indian classical dance that I have been learning for the past 23 years under the tutelage of some of India’s most revered Gurus. Sharing the empowering experiences that performance gives me sees me in the roles of an educator and facilitator in lecture-demonstrations and workshops. Fusing technology in the best possible way with various aspects of performance and its transmission has lead me to teach Bharatanatyam via videoconferencing over the internet to students across two continents for the past five years.
