Morning Class : Stella Subbiah

Stella Subbiah’s week of morning classes are informed by her extensive knowledge of one of the Indian classical dance forms, Bharatnatyam; the week will explore approaches to Bharatnatyam via somatics and improvisation. No previous experience of Bharatnatyam is necessary to take part.

Stella will be drawing on a wide range of references from music, dance and poetry, and asking what happens when we work with certain postures, gestures, and movements – sensorially, emotionally and mentally. What memories or images are created or conjured?

We will explore the experience of, and the relationship between, dance and the dancer and lived experiences, both real and imagined.

Stella Subbiah is teaching with ID for the first time through an invitation by Claudia Tonietto, our former Programme Coordinator.
