Ananya Dance Theatre returns to our season with their newest work. Historic journeys laden with hope, heart-break, and pain spark Dastak: stories of families torn apart, women assaulted and abandoned, and children lost during the 150-mile forced march of Dakota people in 1862, the partition of India in 1947, and again with the recent escalation of violence along the India-Pakistan border, and the crisis around immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border. Together, these histories set up a knocking on our hearts that refuses to be ignored. Ultimately, Dastak works through four major emotional arcs, traveling through earth, water, fire, and air to interweave fragments of memory, responses to current experiences, and imaginations of a joyful future.
