Exhibit Hall Booth #309
Ananya Dance Theatre will perform At the Border/By the River
Choreography: Ananya Chatterjea
Music: Renée Copeland and PJ Roduta
Excerpt from Sutrajāl (premieres September 20) explores tensions, fears, and memories of violences that clog the borders we must negotiate everyday. We dance together, refusing dehumanization and signalling support for those struggling at dangerous divides between survival and extinction. Inspired by the poetry of Kazi Nazrul Islam, celebrated anti-colonial poet of undivided Bengal: “Destroy these prison gates, this cold stone pedestal where we are asked to worship our own chains!”
This Spotlight Showcase is open to registered Conference attendees only. It is not a public performance.
