Kalpanarts is open to collaborations and organizing events for your organisation. We created dance performances for various institutions and companies such as the Hermitage Museum, the Free to Move Spierfonds Gala in the Zuiderstrand Theater and the Hunger Project. Not only do we have beautiful solos & duets that can be booked, we also work on assignment and tailor-made. In this way we can mean a lot for your company or celebration.
Kalpanarts provides themed activities for business groups. Our flexible offer allows companies to combine or choose from a set of tailormade activities and provide employees with the opportunity to experience something unique with their team.
When you book a special company performance with Kalpanarts, you don’t have to worry about details. We organize everything. All your company has to do is invite your guests, sit back and enjoy theater, dance, music and tradition, and enter into exciting discussions.
Attend our current show Breathe and join the spotlight talk
After the show we turn on the lights: the audience is invited to ask questions and enter into a discussion with the choreographer and artists. You might want to know about the meaning, the concepts or the style of the piece. Audience members are able to express their thoughts and experiences. Listen to others, ask questions in a non-threatening environment, let the discussion enlighten you. Perhaps you want to share your ideas and get feedback too. This is an opportunity to get an insight into the creative process. You will go home full of inspiration, with new ideas and knowledge to unleash your own creative genius.

VIP meeting with exclusive presentation (45 min. to 1 hour)
Before or after the show, in a VIP session, you can book a private presentation with a creator of Kalpanarts shows. This is an opportunity to get an exclusive insight into the origin, development and meaning of a performance. Not only will you understand the piece better, but you may find connections between your creative goals and those of the choreographer. Take this chance to ask your own questions and reflect on the topics of the piece. The aim is to provide an inspiring, educational and motivational focus for your group.
€ 750 (prices are indicative)
For a more personal encounter, you can invite an artist to your table. If you have an event, perhaps with a dinner, a celebration or a gathering with your team, this meeting is a special way of introducing certain themes into the discussion. The artist(s) share inside information about the creative process of the performance, expound their knowledge of Indian and other forms of dance and engage participants in the topics of the show.
To be booked with the show (ticketed or private) € 1,500 (entire event)
We offer the possibility of booking a duet or show excerpt with our professional dancers. A booking doesn’t have to be budget-breaking either. If your venue is smaller or the occasion requires a shorter piece, Kalpanarts dancers perform a set that is adapted to your event. Perhaps you need transitions to break up the evening, or an introduction to the conference, maybe it’s a grand finale! Add some buzz to your event!
Tip! These performances can also be the basis for your Artist Talk or Meet the Choreographer.
€ 1,500 - 2,500 (prices are indicative)
Dances you can choose from
Samam means ‘to gather’ or ‘to be together’ in Sanskrit. This duet was originally made for De Hermitage (‘Friends of the Hermitage’) inspired by the special exhibition Classic Beauties. Samam is a moving duet with a poetic atmosphere. Indian footwork, graceful hand movements, expressive eyes and contemporary dance come together in a unique and powerful way.
Music: a recording of a Philip Glass composition, performed by the harpist Lavinia Meijer, arranged to fit your event.
Costumes styled with the desired look for your event.
Duration: original version is 10 minutes, or your choice.
A duet about passion and sensuality set to tango music by Piazolla. Themes such as passion, desire, jealousy and sensuality form the basis of the choreography. The Libertango music underlies the fiery footwork of the duet, which is styled with contemporary dance movements.
This solo is danced by Indu Panday, one of the best Indian dancers in the Netherlands. She is accompanied live by bass guitarist, Mark Haanstra. It is a surprising combination of modern bass guitar music and traditional dance. ‘Tara’ means star in Sanskrit. In this solo, the tension that is felt between silence and sound gives a sense of the gravitational pull of the stars on the earth.
This striking solo is danced by the well-known breakdancer Denden Karadeniz, musically accompanied by live vocals of the Indian Sashwathi Jagadish. With her sharp, South Indian voice, the urban dancer is challenged to present herself in a vulnerable position without losing strength. Rhythms, floor work, hand gestures and fluidity all come together in this powerful and moving solo.
5. Water under Snow
Here we see dancers in an intimate and playful duet with the unique dance language of Kalpanarts on a Finnish music composition.
6. Stream of Touch
In a dance duet about touch and removal, the dancers tempt each other into intimacy.
