Shinjita is a site-specific dancer, with training and experience in Indian classical dance. Her background in Bharatanatyam and Kathak, and her architectural knowledge informs her performance making process, drawing emphasis on features of architecture comprising our everyday spaces.
She is fuelled by her passion for understanding the negotiations in juxtaposing contexts – where old meets new, indigenous meets global or training meets practice, Indian classical dance meets contemporary urban life. Her meaning-making attempts find methods of cross-cultural and multi disciplinary collaborations. She has recently completed her MA course in Performance Training at the Plymouth University.
