Pavan Kumar Hari

Pavan’s Practice Sharing will look specifically at the relationship between music and movement in the Indian Classical dance style of Bharatanatyam. Participants will explore the different ways in which they can bring elements of this practice into their own contemporary choreographic and / or dance practices, as a tool for composition and / or expression.

Facilitated by established local dance artists and visiting guest artists, the sessions are presented in an open, workshop-style format that may move between dancing, writing, choreographic research and discussion.
