Meet the Dancers: Sreeja Debnath and Sabita Debnath

We are Sreeja and Sabita, two of the dancers from Kolkata Sanved who will be performing in the Transforming Steps campaign. We are eagerly awaiting the launch of the campaign on January 2nd!

Today, the team from London arrived in Kolkata: Rose and Elspeth, filmmakers from London and the West Indies respectively and Mafalda, a choreographer from the Jasmin Vardimon Dance Company. We are looking forward to working with them, creating both dance and video.   

The Beginning: Kolkata Sanved, Living Lens and Sadler's Wells

Preparations for our big trip to London have begun! 

This week, Kolkata Sanved will welcome representatives from Living Lens, an organization using video to promote social change as well as a dancer and choreographer from the incredible Jasmin Vardimon Dance Company. Together we will begin preparing choreography as well as video footage for the London campaign which will shed light on the issues of human trafficking and violence.
