Ananya Chatterjea, artistic director, Ananya Dance Theatre, delivered a talk, April 27, 2014, at a TEDx event at Northrop Auditorium at the University of Minnesota, produced independently of the TED Conferences:

What is the potential of dance to demonstrate social injustice? To unleash latent energy? In this talk, combined with powerful live and video performances by Ananya Dance Theatre, Chatterjea shows us how dance can provoke hope and help us surpass our own potential.

About TEDx: x = an independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
