A Living Doll
Patriarchy is still transforming women into living dolls – devoid of independent thought. This dance theater explores their choreographed existence, and whether they able to walk away from it all. In this dance theater we journey from an old nursery rhyme in Bengal, to early-twentieth century US and India, to now, only to find that even now, patriarchy has boxed women into narrow roles transforming them into living dolls, devoid of independent thought. This performance explores their choreographed existence, and whether they able to break free.
