Shantala Shivalingappa


Treasured in both India and Europe, Shantala Shivalingappa is an acclaimed dancer and choreographer of kuchipudi, a 2,000-year-old classical style that takes the name from the South Indian village where it originated. The graceful style is based on the Natya Shastra, an ancient codification of dance, music, and theater. Born in India and raised in Paris, Ms. Shivalingappa has had the privilege of working with some of the greatest artists of our time, including Maurice Béjart, Peter Brook, Bartabas, and Pina Bausch.
