Return 2011

Two classical dancers re-evaluate
and redefine their relationship
with Kathak

Dreamed 2011

an experiment with Kathak, movement, music, fragments of text and snippets of song


Ranan’s production work straddles two main categories:
DANCE with Kathak at the centre of a variety of impulses
THEATRE with dance and movement as an integral and powerful component

“The most valuable thing about Ranan’s work is that you are exploring between different disciplines, different genres and experimenting laterally across the arts.  Every piece has moved from a point of a given conventional technique and moved outwards.”
Anjum Katyal
Arts Writer, Calcutta

Music, movement, madness – the joy and infectious pulse of Kathak specially designed for an audience of children

“Many kids in the audience, who would kick and scream at the thought of watching a classical dance performance, must have ended up badgering their parents to let them learn it.”
- Bombay Times, May 2009

Rangeeniyan 2005

Moods of love reflected through
the changing face of the seasons
