Anusha Subramanyam, Beeja

Anusha Subramanyam (She/ Her) – dancer, choreographer, teacher and dance movement therapist – is seen as one of the most exciting exponents of bharatanatyam working ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ of its tradition.

Anusha Subranyam

Anusha's work is trans-cultural and inter-generational. She has also worked extensively with people who are differently abled.

Anusha is also the creative director of Beeja. Beeja means ‘seed’ in Hindi. In keeping with its name, Beeja aims to generate new ideas, new understanding and fresh creative forms, particularly through the way that it allows us to be alert to, and take tremendous pleasure in living organisms and biological webs of relatedness. Like a seed underneath the soil collecting all sorts of nutrients, Beeja works as a collective and draws on the skills of its members to develop a distinctive way of working that offers an all-round experience. It is about life’s choreography.

Over the years Anusha has performed in mainstream venues and in non-conventional venues like museums, hospitals, schools, village halls and other public spaces. Her aim is to make Bharatanatyam accessible to a wider audience and encourage interaction with the artists and the dance form.

Two Japanese performers, a man and a woman, in white sleeveless tops fold paper in an origami style. One is knelt down and placing their paper on a long white mat while the male performer stands up behind her. An audience of children and mothers are watching on. They are in a dark room with the stage area lit.
