Impro Sharana,
concert for a dancer, has been touring regularly since its creation in December 2014.
Shantala shares the stage with Ferran Savall and four exceptionally talented musicians. Here, musical improvisation and dance are intertwined and engage in an expressive dialogue between east and west, between tradition and contemporaneity, weaving together harmony and freedom and leaving us enthralled by Shantala’s art.

New Collaboration

Moving Alternative | Anne Collod

Anne Collod, Parisian choreographer, pursues her interest in re-mounts based on pieces by pioneering American choreographers, with this new project based on the prolific work of Ruth Saint Denis and Ted Shawn. For this work, she delves into current issues of gender and cultural appropriation, gathering around her 6 dancer/performers concerned by these issues and who bring with them a large diversity of cultures and experiences. She built with Shantala a first step of Moving alternatives in solo, questioning the representations of Indian dance and the cultural borrowings made by Ruth Saint-Denis and Ted Shawn and developing in a reversal movement a critical appropriation of this American repertoire.
