Dances of
Transformation

Ananya Dance Theatre is the leading creator of contemporary Indian dance in the global arts and social justice movement. Invoking the work and dreams of women of color, we radically reframe the ground on which we dance, inspiring our audiences through visual and emotional engagement.
