The Tandav festival brings together people who are visually impaired, physical disabled, hearing impaired, born with Downs’ syndrome, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, etc. They are joined by kids from orphanages and the volunteers. These volunteers guide the visually impaired, or learn sign-language to interact with the hearing impaired. They also help them sense the rhythm of music – by using a combination of the music’s beat and the human touch of the volunteers.

People from all backgrounds come to celebrate this togetherness. It provides a platform for kids and people with disabilities to get exposed to various forms of dance and its intricacies.

All what we had was support from people and we did India's first community driven dance festival Tandav in 2014. Tandav is the only dance festival in India where people who cannot see, hear or speak learn and perform various dance forms.

Tandav's third edition - RudraTandav will cater to kids from children homes, persons with Hearing impairment, persons with vision impairment, persons with cerebral palsy, wheelchair and calliper users, Persons with autism, students from various colleges, experts from disability sector and corporate employees.

Till last year we hosted our festival under Vivekananda Metro station but this year community dreams of a better venue with green lawn and we need your support for that.

This is year we are also launching a speaker/headset which utilizes the rhythm of the song to be conveyed to the person through his skin.
