The Indian dance and music culture is very much alive. Many new choreographies are being made in the classical styles as well as in freer forms. These modern forms of Indian dance often use classical dance forms as a basis, but express a contemporary sense of life. Dakshi Dances aims the spotlight on the male body; three solos performed by three eminent dancers: urban dancer Shailesh Boharan and Bharatanatyam dancer and theatre maker Revanta Sarabhai dance their own solos. Choreographer Kalpana Raghuraman creates a modern solo for Indian dancer Sooraj Subramaniam.
