"Shaatranga: Women Weaving Worlds," the fifth and capstone iteration of Ananya Dance Theatre's five-year series, Work Women Do, will premiere as part of the Women of Substance series at The O'Shaughnessy.
Choreographer Ananya Chatterjea uses two primary metaphors to explore relationships among global south communities linked by Indian Ocean trade routes that pre-existed colonization and slavery: Indigo, an important export/import on these trade routes across Asia and Africa, and blue jeans, whose ubiquitous presence in global commerce falls differently on our skin, mediated through histories of denim and indigo.
