To create a universally accessible platform for promoting, nurturing and disseminating classical performing arts and to bring out the 'artist' in everybody regardless of language, ethnicity and religion.
To popularize classical performing arts in North America. To explore and highlight the ways in which oriental and western classical art-forms resemble or complement each other. To create opportunities for everyone to learn, enjoy and contribute to classical performing art.
Arts without Borders is a brilliant initiative by artist Antara Datta who lives and breathes movement and wants to spread that breath and life energy. I feel touched having encountered this beauty on multiple occasions either as invited guest or as a collaborator.
