Shyamali: Sprouting Words

When: Oct. 13-14, 8 p.m. 2017

Audré Lorde cautioned: “Your silence will not protect you.” Shyamali: Sprouting Words explores how dissent fuels life force and growth, recognizes the courage of women who speak up and talk back to sustain communities against injustice, and celebrates women who refuse to be broken. Inspired by the courage of women around the world, “Shyamali” means “dark green” in Bengali, and invokes the resilience of grass, which springs up when trod upon. Presented by Ananya Dance Theatre.
