Mallika Sarabhai

Dancer, Choreographer & Activist, India

Mallika Sarabhai is a trained classical dancer in the Indian styles of Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi. She was lead actress of Peter Brook’s magnum opus, The Mahabharata. She has been using dance, theatre, music, puppetry, video and martial arts to draw attention to issues relating to women, violence, human rights and the environment for four decades. As a performer she tours the world with her pieces, the latest being a US tour with her post MeToo piece “The Colours Of Her Heart”. She writes, lectures, publishes, directs and choreographs to inspire people to aim for her idea of India and the world – egalitarian, just, plural, humane.
