Welcome to The Kendra
 
The Kendra is an institute of eminence engaged in the training and preservation of traditional Indian Music and Dance and the propagation of the country’s cultural heritage and values through the staging of Dance Dramas based on its rich Mythology, History and Folklore. The Kendra has a vibrant Cultural Centre in the heart of New Delhi housing a College of Classical Music and Dance, a professional Dance Drama Company and a world class auditorium.

 

An abstract and philosophical work of choreography inspired by the Padma Purana, deviating from Kendra’s mythology based dance-dramas. Parikrama is a state of mind which forms an integral part of the Indian psyche. It plunges into and emerges from the cycle of birth and death.
