    Interwoven Stories of Culture, Belonging, and Change

    A journey through cultural stories, memories and histories. What is the journey of a story and how does it shift, evolve and change? Using South Asian contemporary movement and music, Ishami Dance Company creates a unique experience of love and displacement, love and longing, resilience and regeneration.

    ABOUT ISHAMI DANCE COMPANY

    Ishami is an Award-nominated South Asian Contemporary dance company who combine elements of South Asian Classical and Folk dance forms with Western dance forms, treading the line between traditional and modern. Ishami was founded by Amit Patel & Ishika Seth to spark conversations through art. After four sold-out shows in the Bay Area, they toured their original production “Pehchaan,” to New York earlier this year. Ishami’s mission is to explore, unite and amplify the diverse voices, stories and histories of the South Asian diaspora and dismantle social and cultural constructs. They aspire to show the beauty, depth and immense range of South Asian Contemporary movement locally and across the globe.
