Fall Festival of South Asian Arts

Mallika Sarabhai Presents Classic to Contemporary

Mallika Sarabhai and her company Darpana present an evening spanning the classical to contemporary in form and theme. Sarabhai is known for re-examining Indian myths and contemporary social constructs through a feminist lens-always connecting social justice to dance. In this production, topics range from global warming, relationships, and even intriguing thoughts such as an atheist’s relationship to the goddess. Known for constantly championing the underserved through dance, Sarabhai frames art as the most important tool for social critique. She writes, “You have treated the arts as the cherry on the cake. It needs to be the yeast.”
