Subathra Subramaniam is a choreographer, dancer and educator. Her choreography straddles ancient and modern, arts and science, dance and research. Suba’s work is contemporary but draws on the oldest of dance forms, Bharata Natyam from South India.
She is artistic director of Sadhana Dance and her company works are not only based on a desire to innovate and entertain, but a belief that dance, can help the public engage with scientific concepts. Her dance creations are the result of cross-art collaborations and extended periods of research undertaken in scientific and academic institutions. Suba is co-director of the Youth Programme for Cape Farewell, a project which brings together young people, artists, scientists, educators and others to raise awareness about climate change.
