Repertory / A note about the repertory company

The Kalakshetra Repertory Company, formed in the early 1940s, is a one of its kind company performing group works of Indian Classical Dance and Music in India. 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, Kalakshetra’s dance-dramas have come to be recognized worldwide for their impeccable technique and aesthetic. A major part of these works are a legacy of the founder Rukmini Devi Arundale which account for over 25 productions.
