Rakesh Sukesh started his career as a Bollywood dancer in Kerala/India. During this period he worked in several films as a dancer and assistant choreographer. He has been invited to teach at Sidi Larbi’s Company, Ultima Vez, Impuls Tanz Vienna, Deltebre Danza Spain and several other companies and festivals around the globe. He also works as a freelance performer/choreographer, collaborating with various artists from different genres. In 2014 he has become certified yoga teacher from Shivananda school of yoga. He currently lives and works by dividing his time between Europe and Asia.
He created the IntAct Method which is a training method generated through years of research, observation and adaptation to our current times, while also based on intrinsic human characteristics: breath, movement, emotion, thought, intention, and environment. It is an interconnected training system that utilises movement as a base to create, confront and play within the crisis. It provides the time-space to get to know one’s personal form and how to use the body to broaden the range of movement vocabulary. As a holistic form, it is inspired by breath, meditation and the inner mechanics of yogi principles, while also utilising the movement and philosophies from kalaripayattu. This interwoven structure combines and rearranges these tools and ideas in a proposal for a new approach.
