Quimera Tribe and Tribal Secrets founder, Anandha Ray...
...has been on a lifelong path of
searching for the absolutely new in dance.
More then 30 years of dance
Standing ovations in 9 countries
More than 300 professional concerts
Internationally recognized in multiple awards and honors
Walking the edge of the art form,
she has been widely recognized
for her contributions to the
art form of dance.
And she has created
several new methodologies in dance
that have pushed the art form to new dimensions:
before the dance world knew that women could lift
Expressive Movement Processing,
also called Waking Dreams,
a unique method for training the psychology of performance
rogue pedagogic methodology that breaks open
previous notions about training dancers
explorations into shadow,
both figuratively and literally,
in the creation of dance works
that illuminate the human soul.
Shamanic Fusion Dance,
a form of performance and training that blends
dance genres with theories of neuroscience and brain patterning
to create innovative movement vocabulary
that when viewed or danced,
can create a healing force
for both performers

...she spent a lifetime
Her artistic vision sheds light
on the shadows of humanity,
to transform the division between
the darkness and the light,
helping people understand themselves,
by virtue of seeing themselves in the dance...
so that all may exist peacefully
in the balance point between the two...
and then play of light and shadow
can create a rich and satisfying life.
living peacefully in the balance
where shadow and light
are valued equally.
