PLATFORM 22 is part of the ATTAKKALARI INDIA BIENNIAL 2021-22, the most  pre-eminent contemporary movement arts festival in South Asia. The Platform is dedicated to showcasing, discussing and engaging with the works of emerging and diverse voices in contemporary dance-making and movement arts from India. It is also aimed at providing support to choreographers in India who have extended the boundaries of their craft, taken risks in their artistic practice and  portrayed originality of thought as much as fluency of movements in creations. This program will provide a dynamic space for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences between artists and audiences at the Biennial.
