OUR STORY

We celebrate and inspire the freedom of the human spirit through dance. We travel across India with our exceptional tribe of dancers, breaking boundaries and releasing the visceral power that lies beyond the conscious mind.

We believe dance has the ability to prod, poke and tap into our deepest emotions; a part of ourselves that we rarely access in modern life. We dance to know what it feels like, not just to live, but to be alive. In all our work, we strive to move ourselves, and our audiences, beyond reason.

We are based in Bangalore, India. Our artistic signature style celebrates India's root culture and tradition, inspired by Indian classical and folk forms to express the body language in traditional forms yet expressed through a purely contemporary lens.

By empowering stories and body movement, aesthetics with contemporary techniques, we create high-quality innovative performance – always combining dance with original music and often using new digital media and techniques from other disciplines.

The company's reputation has developed through its productions called VINAYAKA , ANVAYA (Connecting Dots), AANANDHAM And TRAPPED, led by chorographer & Director Satvik Mahajan. The company works regularly in collaboration with a family of artistic dancers who are at our core.

We are in the business of inspiring people. I want to change lives like my life was changed – Satvik Mahajan.

ABOUT US

Inspiring Culture

Poundrik speaks the language of the people, of the time. It's not just for professional eyes, it portrays something raw, real and the essence of the human spirit. Its ultimate victory; the ultimate victory of hope; an account of collective and individual; control and the abandonment of control.

When our dancers are on stage, they are themselves, without pretence. Our aim is to cut through layers of artifice, to reveal things for what they really are - the raw truth, biting life at its core.

Music is an essential part of our work; it is its beating heart, its fuel. It creates space and atmosphere and timelessness. The scale of the visual is matched by epic multi-layered soundtracks and artistic performances, to infuse edginess to every single performance our team would perform.

Our work is highly creative and artistic, moving and flowing its focus between Indian contemporary and classical forms that is the integral essence of the pieces of art that fills the stage and brings one step closer to the hosting show.

Poundrik is known for the best costumes and dance props which creates a mind-blowing experience that heals with the quality of dancers performing. Poundrik is committed to ensure the best performance which includes all the 360-degree arrangements from the first stage of Planning, Preparation, Music, Dancers, Costumes, Props etc.
