Daksha Sheth Classical Dancer & Choreographer Profile

Daksha Sheth carved a prestigious reputation for herself in the world of Kathak for 20 years before she began to explore a range of movement idioms and performed with excellence in so many diverse styles. Today, being in the field of dance since 45 years, she draws from her experience in Kathak, Mayurbhanj Chhau, Martial art of Kalaripayattu from Kerala, aerial technique of Mallakhamb to aesthetically combine tradition with Contemporary Indian Dance.

The Sangeet Natak Akademi awarded her for her creative and experimental explorations in the field of dance on 28th September 2010.

Each of her dance productions has been a product of such experiments and together they represent a continuous evolution of a dance language. This evolving dance vocabulary is the signature of her work : Daksha Sheth is the first to introduce aerial technique (since 1996) in the Indian dance and she blends it beautifully into her own productions.

Moreover, each production has radical changes in the context of: music costume, staging, themes, music, lighting design etc. It is in these areas that Devissaro has provided much of the creative input. Daksha Sheth's choreography which along with Devissaro's conceputaluization, visual and aural direction, has seen the birth of some of the most exciting and visually spectacular productions to have come out of India, which have earned critical acclaim both in India and abroad.

As a dancer and choreographer, her strength comes from her command and love of rhythm, a natural flexibility and balance and an instinctive capacity to project a range of emotions from sheer joy to vibrant power. She wants to capture the vitality and rawness of folk and ritual performing arts, and combine this with the sophistication and precision of the classical forms and has developed an entirely orginal movement vocabulary over the years.

An excerpt from her diary : " I am a gambler by nature, and love the risk of experimenting, improvising, trying new things, both in life and in art. I am comfortable with uncertainty, and enjoy moving in new and unknown territory. I enjoy success, but I dont fear failure."

The Daksha Sheth Dance Company has presented their Indian contemporary dance work in more than 30 different countries and in more than 25 international festivals.
