Venue address: Rich Mix, Bethnal Green Road, London, United Kingdom


Lead teacher: Kamala Devam


This FREE dance workshop is based on Kamala Devam Company’s current touring work Ankusha, a trio combining the classical South Asian dance form Bharatanatyam, contemporary dance and striking acrobatic movement. Offered at a suitable level for participants’ age and experience, the workshop will introduce elements of the beautiful and athletic South Indian dance form, Bharata Natyam, and simple acrobatic work as a basis for students’ own creative tasks. The workshop will give participants who would not otherwise have the chance to train in dance and acrobatics the opportunity to challenge themselves physically and creatively in a safe and supportive environment.

Suitable for ages 16-24. No previous dance or acrobatic experience necessary.

Part of Rich Mix’s Youth Takeover 2016

Ankusha will be performed as part of Ankusha and other Mysteries, Kamala Devam Company’s first evening of work on 3 September, 7:30pm at Rich Mix.
