Sengupta Dance Company, India


The name given by legendary Jazz Master Mr. Gianin Loringett.
The Company, addresses the artistic vision of the organization, through performances and production.
It is the performing wing of the institute.
The company works under the creative stimulation of director Dr. Mitul Sengupta and Artistic Director, Ronnie Shambik Ghose.
The company is humbled by the regular visiting artist, faculty and collaborators around the world, who lends their invaluable creative expertise in nurturing the company's vision, but helping it grow from strength to strength.
Sengupta Dance Company, believes in producing and initiating original works, driven by compelling issues while constantly stimulating the creative urge and the experimental drive of an individual. 
Rhythmosaic- Sengupta Dance Company’s artistic approach follows a distinctive philosophy in traditional discipline in movement art with a strong foundation in contemporary movement discipline from around the world.
Rhythmosaic- Sengupta Dance company’s artistic ventures tries to showcase the company’s ability of randomly moving between diverse genres of movement art  yet portraying as an one and an unique identity which is very original and organic to the company’s philosophy.
The company exercises Classical KATHAK as its mother discipline and at the same time follows a strict conservatory training in contemporary dance technique and philosophy.
Rhythmosaic sengupta Dance company is on a constant tryst of pushing the boundaries in the field of classical & contemporary movement art, but always retaining the traditional nuances yet exploring the far sighted contemporary possibilities. 

All our work is based on the technique of classical Kathak and Classical jazz dance. Our performers are trained for years in these two forms in jazz with Ronnie and Kathak with Dr. Mitul Sengupta. But our movement language is a hybrid of these two pure forms . And the work is contemporary because it neither looks like we are doing a Kathak recital or a Jazz dance concert but the language will bear the aesthetics and essence of the forms. Giving it completely a different flow and style.

Review by Dr. Sunil Kotharie about the philosophy and work of Rhythmosaic/ Narthaki.com, March 2018
Rhythmosaic Sengupta Dance Company

I was asked to work with Dr. Mitul Sengupta and Ronnie Shambik Ghose who have formed Rhythmosiac and have been experimenting and creating new works based on Kathak and Jazz form. Ronnie has studied Jazz at Hong Kong Academy of Performing arts and Mitul has studied classical Kathak from childhood; besides she is a psychologist creating original movement language out of these two forms. She is a fellow in Kathak from Kalakritti Sanskritti Foundation. Ronnie and she worked with French choreographer and their work Swan Lake Revisited has received international acclaim. Their other works like Buddha –The Why Within and White Lotus Black Sand and recent Eklavya have been well received. Mitul was the first Indian ever to perform in Bejing Dance Festival with her work in July 2014. She demonstrated how she performs traditional Kathak and how she blends with her eclectic sensibilities, the technique of classical Jazz and contemporary Kathak. She explained how Jazz and Kathak are different and what their common points are and how she blends them.


Unfortunately, the excerpts of Swan Lake Revisited could not be screened during our conversation. It has been staged at Denmark with Royal Danish Ballet. ICCR in Delhi had arranged to stage it in Delhi and it showed their approach to, as Vikram put it 'contaminate' dance. The hybridity, when blended well, with the two forms gave the experiment another form. Often the autonomy of each form was maintained when performed separately and also the confluence did not jar. I asked about interpretation of mythological stories and various characters, for instance, the story of Aravan, the transgender God, illegitimate son of Ulupi and Arjuna. Mitul said that the work Desolate celebrates the voices of those in the society of mistaken identities, confused gender, unsettled conditions, brutally trapped within and revolves round this confused paradigm of life. The LGBT issues find expressions in such work. Both Ronnie Shambik Ghose and Mitul have been working with their team of young dancers. They are scheduled to go again for a collaborative work abroad. It was important that Rhythmosaic found its representation in this conference. Their work needs to be seen more. Next day we could screen their few works which gave those who had not seen their work, some idea of what they are working on and how they are extending the vocabulary of dance.
