Born in India and raised in Paris, the "divinely gifted" (The New York Times) Shantala Shivalingappa combines elements from the Southern Indian traditional dance characterized by flowing lines and intricate footwork with a western contemporary dance sensibility. For her Joyce debut, Shantala performs Namasya, a work celebrating her diverse choreographic influences that consists of four solos including one created by Ushio Amagatsu, Sankai Juku's renowned artistic director, and another choreographed during her residency with Pina Bausch. Filled with elegant movement that sheds light on interior thoughts, Namasya clearly establishes Shantala Shivalingappa as one of the most intriguing artists on the international scene.
