Breaking the Binary: Exploring Gender and Sexuality in Hindu Mythology
Saturday, February 18, 2023
Austin Dance India, under the artistic direction of Anuradha Naimpally, proudly presents, Breaking the Binary: Exploring Gender and Sexuality in Hindu Mythology. These narratives provide examples of people whose flexible identities and sexuality exist within a context that is not just tolerant, but also accepting and supportive. Breaking the Binary weaves together multiple performing media, with Indian classical dance, a haunting musical track, and spoken word flowing together. Dancers include Purna Bajekal, Soumya Nagesh, and Austin Arts Hall of Famer, Anuradha Naimpally with music that includes a track by Austin's Eastern Soul singer, Nagavalli. Multimedia images and spoken word bring the stories to life.
Allow yourself to be transported into a world where each individual form actualizes their potential energy and power with no boundaries.
