The opening weekend of this three-weekend festival celebrates the work
of Chicago’s Silk Road Rising theater company and artists from Los
Angeles’ Post Natyam Collective.

Blowing apart cultural
stereotypes, this evening of interdisciplinary performance rewrites
Indian dance tradition with humor, craft, and a critical edge. “What’s
Your Stereotype?” parodies and personalizes received gender and cultural
roles in a thought-provoking mixture of contemporary Indian dance,
theater, multimedia, and audience interaction.

To get your $5 discounted student ticket, email

Tickets for Columbia students have been subsidized by a generous grant from Art + Activism: Critical Encounters.
