Nritarutya’s biannual contemporary dance festival, Adhyaya aims to foster cross cultural engagement between our audience and new work from across the world. Celebrating the art in the artist, at the centre of Adhyaya is new age and experimental dance which is able to connect with people.  

Since its inception in 2008, we have introduced world class artists to our audience, like Akaash Odedra (UK), Maja Dobrac (Croatia), Postnatyam (USA), Vishwakarin Nambi (India), Kalakshetra (India), Nrityagram (India), and many more.
