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
