Chandalika – The Tale of Trodden
An innovative solo dance-theatrical performance by Suchismita Ganguly who combines the classical dance form bharatanatyam with her theatrical skills to play dual roles in the classic dance drama Chandalika.

She has also received extensive training in Mohiniyattam from Guru Dr. Thankamani Kutty and in Kuchipudi from Dr. Madhuri Majumdar in India.
