Shakram Dance Company is a unique and vibrant Irish contemporary dance company with a commitment to presenting cutting edge collaborative work. Shakram’s earlier work was informed by world music and dance forms, particularly Indian classical dance (Bharatanatyam) and Iyengar yoga. More recently the work explores the kinaesthetic and energetic relationship between the moving body-mind and environment. The company has evolved to develop an eclectic history engaging with the multi-disciplinary practices of live interactive sound and experimental voice, screendance, visual art and site-specific performance. Having produced thirteen original choreographic works funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, the company has toured nationally and internationally. Performances include the Dublin International Dance Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Ilios Contemporary Arts Festival, Norway and the World Congress of Dance Research, Athens.
