About the Show

Samantha Sutherland

kaqwiⱡȼi is an exploration of bringing the Ktunaxa language to dance. This work finds ways to translate a traditional language into movement as a way for the artist to deepen her understanding with it.

Sofía Ontiveros 

Ojalá… (Hopefully…) explores the aftermath of interpersonal betrayal. When one who loves you deeply, hurts you deeply, two contracting truths begin to coexist: the love and lack thereof. Ojalá…” is about two bodies who connect, stumble upon betrayal, and search for healing.

Rasamanjari: a garland of emotions 
Stuti Mukherjee

Rasamanjari: a garland of emotions is explored through the eyes of a south Asian female protagonist/ heroine in a Navarasa Pada varnam named “Angyar Kanni,” composed by Shri Lalgudi Jayaraman, choreographed by Bhavajan Kumar and performed by Stuti Mukherjee.
