The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul
Nitya has initiated, choreographed and produced multiple dance video projects. These have been small initiatives to reach the classical art to a wider audience and make it more relatable. Some of these include the Devi Allaripu, her interpretation of the Swalla Jathi for Indian Raga, A Krishna Nee Begane produced in collaboration with musicians from UK, Bhairavi Kamakshi Swarajathi and Govindan Kuzhalosai
A multimedia production done as part of the Attakkalari Talent Academy. Often absence most resonates through silence. It reminds you of the value of being present. The abandonment of the body on the trail of darkness, the daydreaming, fading into light breeze- it is all a very fragile state of being. A state in which all that is present is flesh and bones, and the mind traverses beyond space and time, into silence. Nitya worked with Contemporary choreographer Sonia Rodriguez on this piece
Swans of Saraswathi and Other Semi Classical Work
Nitya’s love for choreography was initiated when she was a part of the dance troupe in her college at NIT Trichy. Here is when she got to experiment with different themes and ideas within the classical form. She was the primary choreographer for the troupe between 2008-2011 and won many accolades and competitions for the troupe.
