Dance in Devon in partnership with Exeter Phoenix invites Kay Crook, director of CHHAYA COLLECTIVE as our guest artist in the first of our Dance Talks series.

Formed in 2013, CHHAYA COLLECTIVE works with artists in UK and India through live stream technology and international exchange. Their recent project ‘KHAOS’, celebrates the strength of femininity and female empowerment, and the company will work with communities in India next year to provide opportunities for to engage with art and to celebrate the feminine strength. Kay also dances with Heather Walrond Company (The Rising International Tour) and teaches with State of Emergency, Earthfall, Exeter Phoenix, Falmouth University, Bridgwater College, Tacchi Morris, Dartington Arts, Dance in Devon and Cygnet Theatre in the UK and Attakkalari, Shoonya and Lshva in India.
Dance Talks are a companion to Exeter Phoenix’s dance programme as an opportunity to hear about a local dance practitioner’s work, provoke discussion and provide an opportunity to meet other people with an interest or practice in dance.
