Dear Beloved: Honoring International Youth Day

August 12 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Ananya Dance Theatre invites you to the final of four FREE workshops in the Spring and Summer of 2024. Together, we will “write letters” to imagined ancestors and descendants, leaping our minds across time to connect with people who are part of us but who may seem very different from us. (“Letters” are loosely defined here: you may write words, you may create sentences and phrases; or you may create an embodied phrase of movement, or visual shapes and colors, or sounds that go beyond words.)

These “letters” are thematically connected to the work we are developing for a premiere in 2024: ANTARANGA: BETWEEN YOU AND ME (premiere: Sept 27-28, O’Shaughnessy), which explores connections across difference.

No experience or special skills required; just bring your open heart and curious mind. We will provide accessible space at our Shawngrām Institute to gather for the workshop, as well as letter-creation materials.

With the permission of participants, letters created in these workshops could be strung together to create a connective spell, to be shared in the theater lobby during the performance.

Monday, August 12th
7-8:30 pm
Honoring International Youth Day

Together we will invoke our ancestors as children and our imagined next generation relatives, with a focus on the youth in war zones in the Global South, while honoring the lives and dreams of all young people around the globe.
