Ananya Dance Theatre will present excerpts from SHAATRANGA: WOMEN WEAVING WORLDS, a 90-minute work that premiered September 21, 2018. Commissioned by The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University with support from The Joyce Foundation. Choreography: Ananya Chatterjea. Original sound score: Dameun Strange
SHAATRANGA poses the question, “How do we show up for each other?” It uses two primary metaphors: blue jeans and ancient Indian Ocean trade routes for indigo.
This work is being presented during 2018-19 by Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond; Rutgers University, New Brunswick NJ; Dance Place, Washington DC; Kelly-Strayhorn Theater, Pittsburgh PA; John Michael Kohler Playhouse, Sheboygan WI; Bethlehem International Performing Arts Festival, Palestine; Aavejak Avaaz Festival, New Delhi, India; and Pragjyoti International Dance Festival, Guwahati, India.
