Horidraa: Golden Healing at The O’Shaughnessy, September 16-17

September 16, 2016 @ 7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Feet with turmeric

“Horidraa: Golden Healing” explores how women in global communities of color activate hope and healing to sustain communities around the world.


The year: 2053. A patient, dark of skin, has been checked into urgent medical care in a state of collapse. Her name is given as Ashwarnahm BahrAili KofucheeNané and she self-identifies as “the child of many continents.” Who is she? What healing does she need? Follow her journey as she travels into the recesses of memory and imagination to conjure a magical healing experience that invites all into its joy-filled dance.


Choreographer Ananya Chatterjea (named Best Choreographer by the Star Tribune’s 2016 Best of Minnesota) works with the exquisite dancers of Ananya Dance Theatre, director Marcus Young, sound artists Greg Schutte, Queen Drea, Pooja Goswami, and Tenzin Ngawang, visual artist Alison Hiltner, costume designer Annie Cady, and lighting designer Kevin A. Jones to create an original dance theater production inspired by the remarkable properties of turmeric, the root ingredient of many cuisines and recipes that heal from within!
