ABOUT

Ananya Dance Theatre’s two-week, 2021 Buniyaad Summer Intensive in St. Paul, Minnesota, will apply the principles of our movement aesthetic, Yorchhā, and choreographic methodology, Shawngrām, to the landscape of community, exploring dance as public art and processional practice that amplifies the sacred in our everyday lives.

In addition to training in Yorchhā, our social justice and transnational feminist technique, we will build cross-community relationships in workshops by and conversations with guest artists from our family of BIPOC collaborators.

Yorchhā combines movement principles from Odissi, the traditional Indian dance technique, from Chhau, the East Indian martial art, and from Vinyasa Yoga.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
