“There was not a single wasted gesture or sound. Gandhi’s portrayal of these two worlds — traditional Indian culture and contemporary Western culture — illustrates both their differences and similarities.”
– Megan Kennedy for Exploredance.com
A solo tour de force combining dance, stirring vocalization and punching text, Sheetal Gandhi’s magnetically rhythmic Bahu-Beti-Biwi (Daughter-in-law, Daughter, Wife) wraps North Indian music traditions and family characters into a contemporary exploration that segues between humorous portraiture and active resistance. Sheetal Gandhi, a multidisciplinary choreographer and performer, creates work that tells a story – stories which mirror her own life and embrace the human diversity she observes around her. Using a hybrid movement vocabulary influenced by Kathak, Modern and West African dance, as well as complex rhythmic structures, theatricality and vocally, her work reflects her love for Indian cultural tradition and disciplinary technique, with the equally urgent desire to break away from them.
