Dr. Ananda Shankar Jayant

Dr. Ananda Shankar Jayant

Dancer, choreographer Dr. Ananda Shankar Jayant, with an acclaimed and intense body of work, behind her that spans rich mythologies and historical chronicles, to searing commentary on gender issues; continues to stretch the outer realms of artistic endeavor, using the grammar, idiom and space-time construct of Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi making it at once contemporary and communicative.

Dancing with joy, Ananda, one of the renowned dancers of the country; imbues technique and grammar with a sparkling quality, bristling with life. Hailed as an intelligent and thinking dancer with contemporary sensibility, Ananda, with her grace, vivacity and inner luminescence draws the viewer into the inner spaces that she paints, leaving the audience deeply touched.

A breathtaking performer, brilliant choreographer and erudite scholar, Ananda has polished her art to a fine pitch, where the rigor and intensity of training, deep dedication and commitment meets a finely tuned intellect, that blends with ease traditional structures and contemporary inputs.
