Four of the UK’s most respected and distinguished South Asian dance artists presented the ultimate experience of expression in classical Indian dance.

For one night only, Chitra Sundaram, Pushkala Gopal, Sujata Banerjee and Padmashri Pratap Pawar came together to celebrate the rich breadth of Abhinaya in a truly memorable event.

Choreographed for the intimate setting of Rich Mix and inspired by the stories of India, artists showcased their own interpretations through the art of expression, supported by live music. The Masters of Abhinaya illustrated the art form in its true excellence.

“Really interesting to watch the grandmasters on stage together.”
