From Choreographer: Ananya Chatterjea ADT founder and artistic director and co-creator: Laurie Carlos OBIE-Award Winning theater director, this world premiere of Kshoy!/Decay!, Ananya Dance Theatre uses a potent metaphor – mud, land that sticks to skin – to explore the afterlives of women from global communities of color forced to relocate or evacuate from their homelands. The work is the first of a new four-part investigation into violence, trauma, resistance and empowerment experienced by global communities of color. Performed with ADT, a band of women of color committed to artistic excellence, Kshoy!/ Decay! explores femininity, power, and social-justice issues affecting women through a dynamic blend of classical Odissi dance, breath-driven yoga movement and the martial-art Chhau.
