Sham and Nithya

Performing Art – Melbourne, VIC

Sham is an all round performer, with many years of dance experience under her belt. She began training in RAD ballet but soon picked up jazz, tap, hip hop and contemporary, all while acting, singing and playing various instruments. She began to delve into exploring fusion genres and found empowerment through spoken word. Fusing this with physical theatre and dance, she believes art can and should have the ability to spread important messages whilst also engaging with multiple senses. Nithya is a trained and practicing Bharatanatyam (a form of Indian classical dance) dancer with over 20 years of experience in the field. She is also currently pursuing her PhD in Performing arts, and her thesis looks at the classical dance form through a contemporary feminist lens. Nithya is a huge believer in using the arts as a provocative platform for social and political change. ...more
