A fresh contemporary double bill of dance from two talented artists.

Subhash Viman presents Morphed

Morphed re-defines what Indian dance can offer. A solo created by British dancer Subhash Viman in collaboration with Indian choreographer Veena Basavarajiah, with music composed by the renowned singer and musician Raghu Dixit, Morphed portrays how every individual is indefinitely morphing identities in order to be recognised and accommodated in today’s global world.

Subhash Viman is a promising new talent, heavily influenced by hip-hop, urban and contemporary dance styles. He trained in classical Indian dance and has also worked with top Bollywood hip-hop choreographers Javed Sanadi, Paul Cardoz and Rahul Shetty.

Hemabharathy Palani presents Trikonanga & Twine

Hemabharathy Palani is an award-winning choreographer/dancer and the Rehearsal Director of the Attakkalari Repertory Company, Bangalore.

Her solo Trikonanga won the public’s First Choice Award at the 2013 Internationales Solo-Tanz-Theater Festival. The piece combines the distinctive physicality of three dance forms – Bharatanatyam, contemporary dance and ballet and takes the audience on a journey through diverse emotional states.

“Trikonanga fluently combines the pointed foot of ballet with the articulated fingers of Bharatanatyam and the malleable spine of contemporary dance.” The Guardian

Curated by International Dance Festival Birmingham (IDFB 2016) in partnership with Sampad. For the full Festival programme visit
