Sheetal Gandhi in Bahu-Beti-Biwi
Start Date: 3/26/2013Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 3/26/2013End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:
A vibrant, acute, and richly rhythmic solo performance encompassing dance, music, and stories, Bahu-Beti-Biwi explores the traditional roles of Indian women, focusing on the daughter-in-law (bahu), daughter (beti), and wife (biwi). In a tour de force, acclaimed triple-threat performer Sheetal Gandhi depicts these iconic characters, revealing the complex tensions between freedom and compromise, desire and longing, duty and love. With a performance style rooted in the storytelling traditions and rhythmic punctuations of Kathak dance, Gandhi mines the text and subtext of centuries old North Indian women's songs to re-imagine the lives of women in the past and her present. Bahu-Beti-Biwi features an original score from composer Joe Trapanese, whose works have been praised by The New York Times as "precise and evocative [with] wistful, ringing melodies."
