Parbati Chaudhury is a dance artist whose practice has evolved to include choreography, writing, making, performance, and teaching. Her piece, Fader, was highly praised by critics at The Place's Resolution 2020, and she is currently developing her first production, Goodgirl.
Driven by a passion for constructing and echoing transformative narratives and experiences, Parbati's process and works draw on her multifaceted kathak training alongside the development of text. Her collaborative approach with musicians and composers, as well as a love for theatre, television, and film provide crucial inspiration too.
Alongside creating her own work, Parbati also engages with several companies and organisations around the UK. Commissioned by English National Ballet, Akademi, and The Line, a 2022 highlight was co-choreographing Aamad with Kirsten Ho on two talented East London school groups in response to Rana Begum's sculptural installation, No. 1104 Catching Colour. Over the spring and summer, she performed extensively in Pagrav Dance Company's (PDC) latest productions. Finally, as a teacher, Parbati leads classes for PDC, as well as independently, and is the Kathak Lead Artist at Fabric's CAT-Yuva Gati.
