Watch snippets of performance and listen to stories from their journey into learning, dance and the body!
Antara Collective is crafted as a space that centers on the experience of the body as a site of learning; it is also a significant part of the local community, providing a platform for learning, research, production and collaboration. The Collective is committed to Slow Learning – as an alternative technique, that approaches pedagogy through performance.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
