Kalpanarts is the dance company of Kalpana Raghuraman (artistic director & choreographer) and Gysèle ter Berg (business director & artistic associate). At its origin it aims to address social and engaging topics. Kalpanarts is a contemporary dance company with a multi-ethnic cast and following. By bringing Indian dance forms together with urban and contemporary dance, Kalpanarts creates a dance language that transcends genres. Like a heartbeat, there is always a strong rhythmic element in the work. Characteristic is the use of footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions. The company is actively involved in making dance accessible to a non-hearing public, by providing special sensory belts, within the Dance on Mute initiative. Since 2015 Kalpanarts has created stunning choreographies and spectacles ranging from duets to larger company works, often with live music, in theaters across the Netherlands.
