Association Akhtar.12.Jun.2021


Association Aktar is a humble association made up of a team of lovers of ethnic dances who wish to energize the Geneva cultural panorama and democratize it.

Their goal is to promote the arts and artists in French-speaking Switzerland and to forge links between the different artists. They focus particularly on non-academic arts as they often have more difficulty obtaining public subsidies to make themselves known and to access certain performance venues. The organisation’s second area of ​​action concerns social projects related to dance.

Various artists from non-academic disciplines are invited to present their art – and on 12 June 2021, Omkara was invited to perform for their Extravadanza Day.

This edition of Extravadanza took place at the Mottattom-Federation for Mines: an old building with a lot of charm, in which a huge room is allocated for artists and craftsmen from Geneva and is used regularly for shows. It was beautifully converted into a dance space with excellent lighting and acoustics.

Artistic Director Sujatha Venkatesh and senior student Pritha Prasad had the pleasure of dancing to a very attentive and curious audience.
