Divya Kasturi, the winner of our 2023 Doing Dramaturgy bursary.

The bursary will support Divya to take part in the Doing Dramaturgy programme, which is designed to bring together choreographers and dramaturgs to dig deep into the why, where, how and who for of their practice.

Divya has more than 30 years of performing experience, having trained in both Bharatanatyam and Kathak styles of classical Indian dance; worked with Sir Paul McCartney and Nitin Sawhney; and created the first virtual masters dissertation in the field of South Asian Dance practice as research.

Divya says: “Dramaturgy is and has been an important element of all my creative explorations. As a constant learner/seeker, the idea of actually doing an intensive to gain an insight into that world is super exciting for me.  I believe it will enable deeper understanding of an aesthetic heralding a whole new perspective into all my creative thinking, choices and decisions.”
