Next up on the Artist Imagination Fund spotlight is Ria Meera Munshi

Ria is a trained Indian classical dancer. Her artistic interests lie in creating Indian-inspired yet contemporary projects, making them accessible to a wider audience, often with a hint of technology and exciting, engaging, ways of presenting new work.  

With this funding, her fresh concept entitled “The Magic Stick”, inspired by the traditional Indian Folk tale of “The Drum”, will be adapted as a dance theatre piece for a modern audience. A tale of karma, detachment and kindness.

“I am simply overjoyed to have received the Artist Imagination Fund for my new concept, entitled The Magic Stick. This support is integral for the development of both myself, as an artist, the company, Ri Ri’s Dance Academy, and for the development of the storyline for this Indian-inspired children’s theatre production”
