About this event
Revanta is a dancer, actor, choreographer and filmmaker. Having made his solo classical dance debut at age 8, he has been performing professionally and touring internationally with the India-based Darpana Performance Group as well as independently since 1999.
Over the years, Revanta has matured as a classical dancer bringing tremendous energy, masculinity and charisma to the stage, along with excellent technique in both nritta and abhinaya. In recent years, Revanta has developed a unique repertoire of Bharata Natyam pieces, breaking outside the boundaries of tradition, and tackling themes that are relevant to the society and times we live in — presenting the classical form in a refreshing manner to young and modern audiences the world over.
In breathing new life into the Bharatanatyam form, Revanta has been successful in bringing a fresh context to the classical dance and making it popular among a younger modern audience both in India as well as abroad.
“Revanta Sarabhai held the audience hostage with his riveting performance…” – Times Of India
“…with his elegant hand movements and expressive eyes, it is clear that Revanta was born to dance” – Mail Today
The 70 minute dance will be followed by a discussion between Revanta and Satish Kumar, originator and cofounder of Schumacher College, here at Dartington.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
