Mallika Sarabhai

Dance with Sarabhais
One of the country’s most well known danseuse duo will set the stage on fire at a three-day residency this month end. Called the August Dance Residency, you know it’s not just the month we are referring to when it’s Mrinalini Sarabhai and daughter Mallika in question. The residency begins with a screening of Yadavan Chandran’s documentary, Mrinalini Sarabhai: The artist and her art, followed by a conversation with the filmmaker, Mallika Sarabhai and Kathak exponent Gauri Sharma Tripathi. Day 2 continues with Mallika’s applauded work, Sita’s Daughters, a one-woman show representing several Sitas who refuse to surrender to the command of weak and distrustful men. Concluding the three-day choreography homage is a workshop on the innovative use of stylized movements in theatre and the intelligent use of spoken words in dance, making it a must-attend for practitioners of both genres.
