As a Musician, I am only inspired by Complex Human Movement Structures. Modern, Post Modern and Contemporary Concert Dance (Western Movement Vocabulary) and its history of Multidisciplinary Complexities, Kinesthetic Ideologies, Collaborative Processes and Dialogs, and an environment of continued Avant-Garde thinkings, allows me a platform, incomparable to anything else, where my creativity and imagination can exist freely. - Manjunan Gnanaratnam
