My tired feet tell me
All I need is some loving
Maybe all I need is homecoming"

"Dance is the timeless interpretation of life" This has certainly been the driving philosophy behind all of Bharat Sharma's choreographies. Having a career spanning almost four decades, Bharat’s formal training in creative dance and choreography has extended to Mayurbhanj Chhau, Kathakali, Modern Dance and Jazz in India, USA and France, and visited Sweden to study cultural institutions. He currently serves as the Director of the Bhoomika Creative Dance Centre, New Delhi - one of the foremost performing arts institution in India, that has been in the forefront of infusing a new spirit in Indian dance since its inception in 1972. Initiated by a group of progressive artists, the centre has evolved into a dance company known for innovative and experimental choreography that has attracted critical attention in major festivals in India and abroad. Witness Bharat Sharma bring his unique flavour of choreography and execution to the TEDxShivNadarUniversity stage this Sunday through the premier of his new piece "DANDI": A humble presentation combining elements of dance and theatre, and weaving together personal impressions, memories, images and ideas, giving ode to the Father of our Nation.
