Kalpanarts is the dance company of Kalpana Raghuraman (artistic director & choreographer) and Gysèle ter Berg (business director & artistic associate). Since its origins it aimed to address social and engaging topics with a multi-cultural group of dancers and supporters.

By bringing Indian dance forms together with urban and contemporary dance, the theatre company creates a dance language that transcends genres. Like a heartbeat there is always a strong rhythmic element in their work.

Within their Dance on Mute initiative Kalpanarts is characterized by its use of footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions. In this way it is actively involved in making dance accessible to a deaf and hard of hearing public. The dance company also uses special sensory belts which transform sound waves into tangible vibrations.

Since 2015 Kalpanarts has created stunning choreographies and spectacles ranging from duets to larger company works often with live music in theatres across the Netherlands. Their performances appeal to a diverse audience.
