    From a small dance academy that was founded over six decades ago, Darpana today is a workshop for the arts: where tradition meets technology to break down boundaries of art and life; and where performers from the world-over work together to open mindscapes through the arts.Established by Mrinalini and Vikram Sarabhai in 1949, the Darpana Academy for Performing Arts has been directed by their daughter Mallika Sarabhai for the last three decades.The Academy’s vision is a contemporary symbiosis affirming the role of creativity in culture, researching into our origins and reaching out to the unsaid or unthought of, with a language that is universal. Darpana today is a centre for artists committed to excellence, innovation and the excitement of using the arts for change.

With over 25,000 graduates, nearly 11000 performances, audiences in 90 countries, a vibrant arts environment, managed by a strong staff, Darpana is known around the world as an institution of innovation in performance and the arts At the core of the Darpana Academy is a group of highly trained and multidisciplinary artists proficient not only in dance or music but in theatre, the martial arts and other related forms, using many disciplines and many languages.
