Climate Conversation with Subathra Subramaniam
Introducing: Suba Subramaniam.
Subathra, Akademi’s Artistic Director and Joint CEO is a choreographer and educator working at the confluence of dance, culture and science having spent over 20 years as Artistic Director of two South Asian dance companies – Angika and Sadhana Dance. Creating work for theatres, festivals and alternative spaces Suba’s works are a result of in-depth cross art collaborations with award winning artists alongside extended periods of research undertaken with scientists and academic institutions.
As part of Climate Conversations, Suba has created an audio blog with accompanying images centred around several trips to the Arctic as part of a project called Cape Farewell. This audio and visual blog explores Suba’s lived experience of extreme climates, art and science. In her own words, “this blog is to share with you why climate change features so heavily in my artistic practice.”
Our Climate Conversations artists will be appearing at our Climate Encounters festival this July. Save the Date!
