British based with International roots, these artists provide a fresh take on traditional Indian dance styles, showing a mixture of bold and adventurous choreographies.
This programme will feature new work from 2 emerging South Asian dance artists all examining their own practice through a contemporary perspective.
Up-beat, downbeat, elegant, energetic, cool, hot, Daredevas is a stunning mosaic of choreography designed for the 21st century.
Akademi is a cutting-edge organisation that works to encourage excellence in the practice of South Asian dance in Britain.
South Asian dance is an influential force in British art, society and education, and Akademi continues to provide opportunities and platforms like Daredevas which enable audiences to access high quality South Asian arts practice, whilst providing an important contribution to the wider mainstream dance programme in the UK.
