Shakram Dance Company (1999-2014) was a vibrant Irish contemporary dance company committed to creating multidisciplinary collaborative work. Shakram’s earlier choreographic work was informed by world music and dance forms and in particular by Bharatanatyam, a South Indian Classical dance form. The company evolved an eclectic history engaging with live interactive sound/experimental voice and dance, screendance and site-specific performance. Having produced thirteen original choreographic works funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, Shakram toured nationally and internationally. The work was selected to be performed in Dublin International Dance Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Ilios Contemporary Arts Festival, Norway and the World Congress of Dance Research, Athens.
