Our Productions

Adishakti productions vividly bring together dance, movement and emotional craft, integrated into one performance language. They are all the result of intensive research into traditional arts and their reinterpretation with a contemporary aesthetic. After starting with pre-written scripts, Adishakti has been generating its own material, applying research to forge a hybrid, contemporary culture.
