Sutrajāl: Revelations of Gossamer

This production is set against and within the backdrop of increasingly diverse racial and ethnic communities in Minneapolis-St. Paul that often remain segregated from each other and figure in the larger body politic as ‘census data’ and ‘vote banks.’ Like a delicate spider’s web, spun from the spider’s body to connect the hard corners of two unmoving walls, the juxtaposed stories of “Sutrajāl” will negotiate the tensions and resonances among memory fragments, historic references, and visions of future horizons
