“Hark” is a dance-theatre performance choreographed by Namaha Mazoomdar. It tells the story of a mother, her two daughters and two daughters-in-law. The five women lose their partners in the span of a year. The piece explores their loss, coping and self-discovery. “Still I Rise” is a solo work by Vidhya Subramanian in which she incorporates neoclassical Bharatnatyam and spoken word. The piece tells the story of Draupadi from a first-person perspective.
