  • About This Activity

  • Chitrasena Dance Company, the oldest and esteemed dance company in Sri Lanka was established in 1940s by Guru Chitrasena. He brought Sri Lanka’s traditional dances which emanated from village rituals to the modern stage.  He started expressing his ideas of these rituals in dance form on stage through the Dance Company. With the setting up of the Dance Company, the dance theatre of Sri Lanka transformed a lot. Today, the dance school and the Company are led by Chitrasena’s wife Vajira and daughter Upeka who have nurtured his legacy with a lot of love and respect for him. Chitrasena and Vajira are renowned as pioneers and revolutionists in Sri Lanka’s dance realm as they have not only performed on stage but also experimented without compromise. By using traditional dance language as well as form they have been able to create a cutting-edge contemporary dance theatre in the country.
