Women and social justice issues are the focus of Ananya Dance Theatre's dynamic works, which the company performs with emotional intensity, physical prowess and artistic excellence. The world premiere of Kshoy!/Decay! explores the lives of African and Asian women forced to relocate from their homelands. Using mud as a metaphor, ADT creates a work of resonant storytelling through a choreographic blend of classical Odissi dance, the martial art Chhau and yoga. This is the first of four works that will draw on mud, gold, oil and water to investigate violence, resistance and empowerment. Co-directed by Artistic Director Ananya Chatterjea and OBIE Award-winning theater artist Laurie Carlos.
