Saju Hari

When the Body Becomes the Eye

Saju Hari's contemporary dance style is a very enjoyable and energetic one, which he teaches with beautiful music. The concept 'body becomes the eye' has derived from the Keralan Martial Art form 'Kalarippayattu' which is his main training. It is referring to speed and sensitivity, treating the whole body as one singular energy - a Body-Mind-Unity.

Through his first teaching experiences, while working with the Akram Khan Dance Company, he found a way to incorporate this Martial Arts technique and other influences from other South Asian dance forms like Kathak, Bharatanatyam etc., and merged it into this exciting contemporary style. It combines the subtle fluidity, and articulation of the extremities (as in the South Asian dance forms) with the attack and the use of focus like in a martial art.

Saju's teaching philosophy focuses on teaching rather from a performer's perspective and is engaging in questions such as: what are you thinking while you are on stage? what does your eyes do during a performance? It is about the breathing in general and economising the energy through a massively tiring sequence, reflecting on the individual performing experience and stories.
