Ananya Dance Theater Presents Shyamali: Sprouting Words
ANANYA DANCE THEATER
Shyamali: Sprouting Words
Thursday, FEBRUARY 22
7:30 pm | Castle Theater
Their exclusive Hawai'i appearance
Ananya Dance Theatre is comprised primarily of women artists of color who are cultural activists: working through artistic processes to engage audiences, build community, and move towards justice and beauty.
They celebrate proactive dissent as fuel for the life force and growth, recognizing the courage of women who speak up and talk back to sustain communities against injustice.
With dance as a choreographic response to global issues, the company is part of a social justice movement: inspiring audiences through visual and emotional engagement. "Shyamali" means "dark green" in Bengali, and invokes the resilience of grass, which springs up even when trod upon.
