By representing the modern society we live in and depicting narratives that expose human experiences and behaviour, the company creates emotionally impactful work. The company's work is inspired by traditional South Asian dance form Bharatanatyam and strongly influenced by Shane Shambhu's work as a theatre-maker with Complicite's Simon McBurney.
