Shobana Jeyasingh Dance pushes the possibilities of dance beyond storytelling, to stimulate thought, reaction and sensation through the movement of the human body. Restless, inquisitive and intrepid, they never tread the same path twice. They challenge expectation, going against the grain to create dance pieces that are at once beguiling and unsettling.

They're inspired by the complexities and contradictions of the world around us, taking cues and ideas from unlikely corners. Past works have explored science and classical painting, culinary trends and urban architecture. They use original design, music, media and site-specific staging to complement and counterpoint their dance, embracing the harmony and the tension they build.

Their many and varied artistic collaborators are cut from the same cloth — brave, bold and uncompromising. Together, they take their audiences on an adventure of the senses.

Jeyasingh’s imagination is boundless, her dance is brave and exhilarating… one of the country’s most brilliant creators.
