Subhash Viman Gorania


Subhash Viman Gorania is a cutting-edge, British choreographer and dancer. Shifting deftly between Indian classical, urban and contemporary dance, Subhash combines seamless movement with a dose of provocative humour, giving his work an unorthodox and quirky edge. His immersion in a rich plethora of dance training feeds a wide range of movement vocabulary into to his choreographic work, with characteristic physicality, floor work, swift spins, humorous gesture and expression. He trained in bharatanatyam from Chitraleka Bolar (UK) & Chaaya Kanavate (India) and kathak from Nilima Devi MBE (UK) & Asha Joglaker (India).

His performance credits include the award-winning production The Troth – Usne Kaha Tha, produced by Akademi and choreographed by Gary Clarke, which toured nationally and internationally throughout 2018 -19 winning the Herald Angel Award from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018. The Bessie award winning choreography Ecstasy for the German tour of Get on the Good Foot produced by Apollo Theatre in New York. His own contemporary work, Gamechanger and on Kiran Nagarkar’s novel God’s Little Soldier produced by Theatre Freiburg, Germany.

Subhash has a new position as Dance Artist in Residence at the Peepul Centre, Leicester, through which he will present international artists and build a new community showcase for local dance artists and audiences in 2020.
