Silambam Houston Presents YUVA 2022

YUVA 2022 – a unique emerging artist showcase

Houston, TX – The YUVA festival, Silambam Houston’s unique platform for emerging artists, is back on September 10, 2022. Livestreamed from the Silambam Houston Cultural Arts Center with a limited live audience, YUVA 2022 brings together eight talented young Indian classical dancers from across the country who have collaborated over the last several months to create new work for the YUVA festival.

YUVA is a collaborative choreography and performance platform for young and talented Indian classical artists (dance and music), curated and presented by Silambam Houston. YUVA strives to catalyze collaboration and creativity among young upcoming artists in the Indian classical arts and to encourage them to ‘find their artistic voice’.  YUVA Artists, selected from among a pool of applicants, collaborate to create new artistic works for presentation at the YUVA festival.

This performance is made possible by grants the National Endowment for the Arts, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance, the BIPOC Arts Network and Fund, and Dance Source Houston.

More information on each of the artists, and a link to reserve tickets to in-person or livestream viewing, are available at Tickets are pay-what-you-can, and all proceeds go to compensate the talented artists that are the creative backbone of YUVA.
