Introduction Ranan Performance Collective grew out of an immediate felt need to demystify Indian classical dance and make it accessible and enjoyable for larger audiences. The vision has grown into a conviction that performing arts should be an indispensable part of life both for those who practice it and those who partake of it. Our work spans three areas: productions and performances, performance training, and arts engagement projects. With a thoughtful approach to performance, inventive visual staging, vibrant productions, experimental but rooted creative processes, and a strong focus on facilitating engagement with the arts, Ranan’s variety of work—traditional Kathak, choreography, dance-­‐theatre; workshops, seminars, lec-­‐dems, interaction sessions, collaborations; experimentations with film and live dance— has earned the company a reputation for quality, innovation, commitment, and refreshing energy. Supported and partnered by a range of public and private organisations from India and abroad, Ranan hopes to be a nodal and nurturing point for the performing arts in India.
