Portrait of Aakash Odedra

Aakash was born in Birmingham and trained in the classical Indian dance styles of Kathak and Bharatanatyam. In 2009, Aakash performed at the Svapngata Festival in London, curated by Akram Khan. From then, Aakash developed a more contemporary approach to movement. His work is the result of a unique synthesis with contemporary dance, both in his choreography and his creations with other choreographers. Aakash formed the Aakash Odedra Company in 2011 as a vehicle for commissioning solos and for Aakash to develop his own choreographic work.
