Board of trustees:
Director of Business Change and Innovation in the Insurance/Financial Services industry, also serving as a Board Trustee at Cockpit Arts, and as a Board Advisor at the Cardiovascular Research Trust.
I am delighted to be a member of the Board of Trustees for such a dynamic and innovative organisation in the performing arts.
Sujata Banerjee Dance company brings to life the wonderfully rich and multi faceted dance form of Kathak, and often brings together a range of dance and cultural traditions to create unique collaborations that celebrate human diversity.
The first time I had a glimpse of SBDC four years ago, I was immediately captivated by Sujatha Didi's unique ability to leverage the rich vocabulary of Indian classical dance to tell stories that bridged cultural divides and reflected society today without compromising on the integrity and discipline of the dance form. Whether it be taking the BBC Dance Proms by storm at the Royal Albert Hall or closing out the Ravi Shankar centennial celebrations at the Southbank Centre with an unforgettable performance that was called out by the Financial Times, SBDC is a trailblazer in bringing Kathak to new audiences and platforms.
Having started my own lifelong love affair with Indian classical dance at the age of four and as a professional in International Development, I am a passionate believer in art as a powerful tool for social progress by cultivating cross-cultural empathy and enabling generational healing. I am thrilled to be supporting SBDC in cultivating the next generation of dancers and dance enthusiasts who will push the frontiers of how South Asian art is shown & experienced.
