beej means seed
the source of the creative
Founded in 2005, beej is an interdisciplinary initiative that is focussed on engaging with and pushing boundaries of contemporary expression in performing arts practice, research and education.
Rooted within the language and grammar of Kathak and Hindustani classical music, we work together as individuals with diverse backgrounds, training and expertise to converge our creative energies and explore possibilities of storytelling through the body, sound and space.
We aim to build a resource centre for learning, and a community of artistes, critics, academics and rasikas with a consciousness that encourages rigorous practice, focussed interaction, dialogues across disciplines, new genres of collaborative performance and novel approaches to classical dance and music pedagogy.
