Ladies dance the blues in Neel: Blutopias of Radical Dreaming. "Neel" is Bangla for "blue," a color shaded with several different meanings, from the midnight blue of disappointment and pain to the brilliant azure of limitless "blue skies." Now every hue is captured in this dynamic piece from Ananya Dance Theatre, the leading creator of contemporary Indian dance. Inspired and informed by artistic director Ananya Chatterjea's twin interests in choreography and social justice, Neel embodies the potent dreams of the marginalized in dance that is both original and richly evocative. Ten company dancers give life to Chatterjea's choreography in a performance that blends dance with music, poetry and dramatic set and lighting design. Learn More

This was my first visit to the Cowles Center. It's very nice. The 4 different dance pieces in the Fall Rep were all very different from each other. The variety was amazing. The classical ballet was beautiful. The modern dance piece was unique, curious, charming and funny. The Gregory Hines tribute piece was very....Gregory Hines.

My wife has been trying to get me to go to Ballet for years. This was a great way to get an opportunity to please her and not overdo for myself.
The performances were great, the variety was welcome and the interpretive portions interesting.
