Event Description

And She Spoke is a production that amplifies the voices of women, questioning a deep-rooted patriarchal society and her perception of life. The work began as an online research laboratory during the COVID lockdown. Isolated boxes on screens became a way of sharing poetry, paintings, experiences, and dance. The sheer power of telling one's stories propelled into a full-fledged production. This production is deeply immersive, emotional and cathartic, not just to the viewers but also to performers. And She Spoke blurs the boundaries of a preset format of Indian traditional dances, its structure and its treatment in execution. Leaving its audiences with lots of food for thought, it demands a dialogue beyond the proscenium. Each performer comes from varied geographical locations, dance training and life experiences. They bring in their unique narrative that ranges from inspired historical female figures to personal, yet shared, experiences. This disparity gives the production its exclusive quality, seamlessly flowing through the idioms of dance & theater. It is aimed at humanity in general whose action and inaction impacts the world. It questions the ways of society, its effect on mental and physiological harmony, and nudges to redo certain actions.
