Maya Dance Theatre presents ANWESHA-BEYOND THE DARKNESS, inspired by an earlier work Anwesha-The Quest (2012), an unsettling physical dialogue that compelled the viewer to probe the traditional narrative of Ramayana’s Sita. The upcoming work is a continuation of Maya’s journey of social exploration. It addresses the relevant yet less discussed subject of mental well-being, delving into the ‘urban-ness’ of society and its intangible pressures that result in a state of reduced mental wellness. Sita continues to be a medium for exploration and is used to draw parallels to the many Sita-s, regardless of gender, who are hurt and suppressed in our society today.
