About inDANCE
 

inDANCE is a progressive Canadian dance company whose works spans a large choreographic trajectory of courtesan style Bharatanatyam to global contemporary dance works to queer dance creations. It presents works that are a potent, distilled synthesis of artistic director Hari Krishnan’s Asian and western artistic personae.

Probing the burdens and legacies of “tradition,” inDANCE disrupts the familiar and evolves new meanings for the archaic, propelling the company on a trajectory that subverts normative political and social life-worlds.

The company pioneers work that is unconventional and transgressive, producing eccentric, sensual, and virtuosic dance that confronts dominant discourses on global culture. inDANCE’s work is continually presented at prestigious international festivals and venues.
