Braiding Rivers Festival: Stereotype
Featuring Cynthia Ling Lee and Shyamala Moorty of the Post Natyam Collective

Curated by Links Hall Artistic Associate & Columbia Professor Emma Draves

Performance dates:
Friday, April 5 - Sunday, April 7
Links Hall, 3111 N. Western Ave., Chicago

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 or follow the link to the right.

This Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Chicago Roots opportunity is brought to you by Asian American Cultural Affairs and the Dance Department. Tickets for Columbia students have been subsidized by a generous grant from Art + Activism: Critical Encounters.
