Created and Performed by Sheetal Gandhi
3 minutes of excerpts from a 50 minute solo
Gandhi’s Bahu-Beti-Biwi (Daughter-in-law, Daughter, Wife), is a powerfully rhythmic dance-theater solo that wraps North Indian music traditions and family characters into a contemporary exploration that glides between humorous portraiture and active resistance.
Gandhi mines the text and subtext of centuries-old North Indian women’s songs to re-imagine the singers’ lives by confronting them with women from her own life. Her characters have conversations with each other across time and space, revealing the complex tensions around freedom and compromise, desire and longing, duty and love.
Music by Joseph Trapanese, and folk songs from Rajasthan, India.
