Aparna Sindhoor Dance Theater
Aparna Sindhoor Dance Theater "A Story and a Song" A Story and A Song is a new production that has been developed based on women’s stories. An interactive dialogue between Kannada folk tales, Native American tales along with narratives from contemporary women, A Story and A Song is a tale of women, environment and love. Stories are from A. K. Ramanujan’s translations of Kannada folktales and Native American tales by Richard Erdoes and Alfonso Ortiz (editors), and local tales by grand mothers, friends and family. Choreography is based on Bharatanatyam, Yoga, Martial Arts and Theater. The performance encompasses spoken word, dance, theater and contact improvisation in a powerful way to engage the audience.
