Manasamitra South Asian arts organisation re-imagines...

Manasamitra is a Yorkshire based arts organisation delivering a range of South Asian arts and cultural experiences in traditional and innovative ways. The company’s work is stimulated by ideas, forms and aesthetics from India located within a contemporary British context.

We are proactive in collaboration, drawing together diverse disciplines, skills, talents and cultures to create new content. This includes original touring productions, special one-off commissioned performances and stimulating work in schools and the wider community.

Over the last 9 years we have worked collaboratively with a wide range of partners: including York Minster, Harewood House, Fountains Abbey, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Tatton Park, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Leeds Art Gallery, Howard Assembly Rooms, Northern Ballet, University of Leeds and Manchester Art Gallery.

We have also frequently performed in a range of South Asian Melas (festivals): Huddersfield, London, Wakefield, Bradford, Leicester and Edinburgh; and broader festivals like World Together Festival, Crow Nest Festival, Dewsbury Outdoor Festival, Manchester Storytelling Festival and the North Wales Storytelling Festival. We have had a regular presence at Batley; and Ilkley Literature Festivals over the past few years.
