In the Indian tradition, dance was meant to provide moments of connectivity between body and spirit, to which the audience was invited to participate. Dance Routes has explored this objective through all its performances, both in solo works and group productions.

Solo productions include Odissi Mandala (2005), Conversations (2009), Biel-Banaras-Bhubaneswar (2008), and Magam (2010/11) which were all created with accompanying video footage.

All productions were created using material from the choreographic repertoire of Dance Routes. (See choreographic notes).
