Raina Peterson is one of Australia’s very few professional practitioners of Mohiniyattam, which they learned from their guru Smt. Tara Rajkumar. Raina is also a dancer-choreographer with a background in Kathakali (classical theatre), Kalaripayattu (martial arts), folk dance and Bollywood, and will soon be starting a yoga school. Together with dance partner Govind Pillai, their full-length works include In Plain Sanskrit (2015), Bent Bollywood (2018), Third Nature (2019) and Kaala (upcoming, 2019).
