“Divinely gifted"—New York Times

Born in India and raised in Paris, Shantala Shivalingappa’s exquisite solo dance program Namasya combines elements from her training in Southern Indian traditional dance forms--characterized by flowing lines and intricate footwork--with a contemporary dance sensibility. Namasya, an evening celebrating her diverse choreographic influences, consists of four solos including one choreographed during her residency with famed dance master Pina Bausch and another created by Ushio Amagatsu, artistic director of butoh standard bearers Sankai Juku. The elegance that characterizes each piece illuminates the intimate interior world of Shantala Shivalingappa and reinforces her presence as one of the most intriguing dance artists on the international scene.
