Kalakshetra in Chennai was founded by Rukmini Devi Arundale in 1936 and has since become a premier institution primarily dedicated to dance and music.
The repertoire of the company includes mythology based dance-dramas, classical and contemporary Bharatanatyam compositions, as well as programs of the varied folk dances of India. In particular, Kalakshetraâ€™s dance-dramas have come to be recognized worldwide for their impeccable technique and aesthetic.
The Kalakshetra Foundation will be performing an expressive dance piece Jataya Moksham from the Ramayana choreographed by Rukmini Devi Arundale herself.
