User Bio

We create original dance theater inspired by the ordinary lives and extraordinary dreams of women in a global context; we develop emerging artists trained in Yorchha, our technique of contemporary Indian dance, and the philosophy of Shawngram; and we engage audiences, especially from communities of color and of refugees and immigrants, in our workshops and public performances.

Our aesthetic is embodied in the term Yorchha. Yorchha connects three Indian traditions of movement with a philosophy based on Shawngram (struggle/resistance), Aanch (heat/desire), and Daak (call to action).
