About Kala Vandanam
Suchitra’s artistic work has been received with appreciation, and is noted for its adherence to her gurus’ exacting standards and depth in both abstract and expressional dance. Suchitra’s performances as a soloist, a lead dancer in several of Nritya’s productions, and as a guest artist in productions by Monica Cooley have been received with appreciation. Her solo performances over her career have supported fundraising activities for a variety of worthy causes in several cities in the US, and she has participated in local cultural outreach through Geetmala TV on TPT-MN, and the St. Paul Art Crawl. Suchitra is a skilled nattuvangam (vocal percussion and hand cymbals) artist, accompanying soloists and dance companies.
