| Buy Tickets

A contemporary Indian American dance company comprised of women artists of color, Ananya Dance Theatre is made up of cultural activists working through dance and artistic processes to engage audiences, build community, and move towards justice and beauty. Inspired by the work of Dr. Vandana Shiva and other women activists of color, Ananya Dance Theatre performs Shyamali: Sprouting Words. Shyamali is a Bengali word that means dark green and invokes the resilience of grass, ground cover, and moss as a metaphor for the courage of women who speak up to create resilient and sustainable communities.
