presents Broken Seeds (Still Grow)
March 15: 7:30 p.m.
March 17: 7:30 p.m.
March 18: 6:30 p.m.
Nadhi Thekkek (Artistic Director, Nava Dance Theatre) and visual artist Rupy C. Tut (Art by Rupy, Oakland, CA) create Broken Seeds (Still Grow), a multi-disciplinary dance theatre production exploring the continuing impact of the 1947 British India Partition. Through bharatanatyam dance and mixed visual media, they examine the hyphenated-American, immigrant experience, linking it to the displacement of their ancestors during Partition. This creative inquiry sources poetry, eyewitness accounts, and current events to understand the current political climate while reflecting on what it means to belong somewhere.
This creation of this work was supported by the East Bay Fund for Artists through the East Bay Community Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Dancers' Group CA$H Grants, and crowd funders. This project is fiscally-sponsored by CounterPulse.
This program will be preceded with an exhibition of bharatanatyam choreographers who are working in the area of social justice and followed by an artist talk-balk.

Envisioned and directed by Sammay Dizon with performance collaborators Jose Abad, Gabriel De Leon, Raúl Torres-Bonilla, and Keisha Turner, this multimedia dance theater work will take an uncomfortably intimate look at the violence against POC and how we create safety for ourselves and one another in this sanctuary city.
Collaborating artists include Dåkot-ta Alcantara-Camacho (Sound Designer), Solitaire Miguel (Video Designer), Del Medoff (Lighting Designer), Baltazar Dasalla (Costume Designer), Keisha Turner (Performing Artist), Raúl Torres-Bonilla (Performing Artist), Jose Abad (Performing Artist), and Gabriel De Leon (Performing Artist).
