Sooraj Subramaniam is trained in contemporary dance and classical Indian dance styles. With the solo Nimbus and the group piece Pallavi you get an insight into his hybrid dance language.


In nimbus, choreographer Sooraj Subramaniam searches for a hybrid dance language in which he mixes the harmony and elegance of classical Indian dance styles with the abstract and spontaneous of contemporary dance. In this solo, Sooraj depicts the human capacity to dream. From everyday fantasies to existential life expectations and the inner conflicts that accompany them. The title of the work refers to the Latin word for a dark, amorphous cloud, a metaphor for the emotional world that the maker wants to evoke. 

“What he does is marked with perfection and beauty underlined with intelligence. I always think of him as a poet. And his body is totally tuned so it produces music in dance.” - Aditi Mangaldas 


In Pallavi, choreographer Sooraj Subramaniam explores the scope of the Odissi dance language with 4 Indian dancers. Using contemporary methods, he breaks open this classical East Indian dance style and presents it in a new contemporary context. In Sanskrit, the word “Pallavi” means “budding” or “flowering”. Sooraj views this work as a seed that germinates and grows into a multiple ecosystem. Starting from minimalism and the simplicity of a single movement, this performance unfolds and doubles into a network of complex patterns and kaleidoscopic motifs.

With follow-up discussion.
