In a unique artistic exchange, Akademi brings together Somita Basak and Hélène Lesage to present an evening celebrating Bharatanatyam in its purest form. Both artists bring their own distinctive style and interpretations of this sculpturesque Indian Dance Technique. Through mutual dialogue and mentoring by Chitra Sundaram, these artists unite to showcase their established repertoire, refined through Akademi’s artist development programme NAVODIT.

The NAVODIT programme challenges artists to create a better understanding of their performance work in relation to themselves. It launches dancers at the early stages of their careers by providing a foundation for their artistic development.
