About this show

Partners both on and off-stage, Renjith Babu and Vijna Vasudevan are part of the new generation of classical Indian dance, pushing the borders of bharatnatyam and elevating the art of the jugalbandi (duet).

Renjith and Vijna exemplify the kalakshetra style of bharathnatyam, with its emphasis on straight lines and exaggerated geometry, yet are influenced by yoga, the martial art kalaripayattu, as well as other dance styles, so as to fill their performances with 'brilliant and unexpected choreographical twists' (India Herald) while working within the traditional framework.

This exciting duo perform at Sadler's Wells for the first time, opening the dance programme of Darbar Festival 2018, curated by Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan
