Chitra Vairavan

Chitra Vairavan is a contemporary Indian dancer and choreographer of Tamil/South Indian-American descent. Vairavan is immersed in both Tamil culture and progressive brown politics in the U.S. She dances to heal and creates dance to help heal others. Her embodied practice and experimental process is rooted in deep listening, freedoms, poetry, vulnerability and ancestral memory. The aesthetic of her training is through both yoga and contemporary Indian dance forms – mainly a mixture of training in Bharatanatyam, Odissi and Yorchha.
