"Finding My Voice" with Dr. Sarabhai

Saturday, September 16, 2017

In this performance ‘Finding My Voice’ Dr. Sarabhai and her team will use the centuries-old Bharat Natyam dance form to focus on this century’s burning issues such as intolerance and global warming. She addresses our myriad problems through the centuries with lyrics in many languages besides the ancient Tamil.

Renowned danseuse, choreographer and activist Dr. Mallika Sarabhai will be performing at the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center with her troupe from the Darpana Academy of Performing Arts. Dr. Sarabhai has through the years repeatedly sought to engage and question contemporary and age-old issues through the medium of dance and theater. The performance will also feature Revanta Sarabhai, son of Dr. Sarabhai who has established himself as a truly contemporary choreographer and dancer. 

This performance will be hosted in collaboration with three organizations devoted to the arts and social causes - Indians for Collective Action (ICA), Art Forum SF and The Montalvo Arts at the Villa Montalvo Art Residency Program.

There will be different levels of tickets/sponsorships available to match all budgets.
VIP tickets available for $200 including dinner reception with Dr. Sarabhai and the team. Tables also available.

This program utilizes part of the City’s allotment of programmable days at the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center (M-A PAC) as part of the City’s joint use agreement with the Sequoia Union High School District. For more information on performing arts programs sponsored by the City please visit the M-A PAC webpage.
