An Evening with Dancers
A rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with some of the UK's finest South Asian dancer
Oct 16 2014
Shravan and Superna Sood kindly invite you into their home for an Evening with Dancers: a private event of food, drink and performances from internationally renowned, London-based South Asian dance charity Akademi. Watch performances from Akademi artists Manuela Benini, Khavita Kaur and Kali Das in this intimate space followed by an opportunity to talk to the artists and the Akademi team and learn more about South Asian dance in the UK.
This event is in aid of Akademiís groundbreaking Artist Development Programme: NAVODIT. The NAVODIT scheme supports young artists to experience their first professional performance, with help from a highly skilled and experienced production team and mentor. Artists who have participated in the scheme have gone on to tour their pieces and build their careers in the dance profession. Akademi supports them through offering rehearsal space, paying for mentoring, production and marketing.
In the next three years through the NAVODIT scheme we will launch six emerging artists to become dance leaders of the future and participate in the mainstream dance sector. With your help Akademi can continue to pioneer the next generation of South Asian dance artists.
We hope to raise £1500 for the next NAVODIT scheme through your kind donations. A suggested donation of £30 per person will help to secure the future of South Asian dance.
