Portrait of Shaily Dadiala by Kiruthik Sai

Shaily Dadiala is a choreographer, dancer, and cultural producer. She is the Artistic Director of Usiloquy Dance, which she founded in 2008.

She choreographs and performs original works based on the techniques of the Indian Classical dance style Bharatanatyam. She holds a bachelor’s in arts specializing in Bharatanatyam from India (1994), where she was born and raised. Her work applies vocabulary rooted in Bharatanatyam, exploring the lesser-known cultural aspects of diasporas and communities that are misrepresented when it comes to social equity. The grid formed by intersections of migration, race, and gender drives the strategy behind her work.

This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
