Akshay Sharma

Creativity / Knowledge / Imagination

I am a freelance dancer, choreographer and a performer born and brought up in India and based in London. My discipline is choreography and I create emotionally resonant and intellectually stimulating work.


Dance allows us to access freedom and joy. My love for the moving is central to my practice. As an artist I explore my relationship to the world , my/our place in it by asking questions that are curious about time and processes and changes they undergo. These questions stem from a curiousity of physical and metaphorical structures that govern us.

My work has been supported by Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Yorkshire Dance, Kalasangam, Brick Box Rooms, London Contemporary Dance School, Dance Umbrella, DanceCity and Chandigarh Sangeet Natak Akademi.
