Sheetal Gandhi “Bahu-Beti-Biwi” (Florida Dance Festival)
Powerful combination of modern dance, live singing and percussive text focused on North Indian music traditions and a humorous portrayal of an Indian-American teenage girl and her journey through different generations as she actively resists and redefines freedom, compromise, desire, longing, duty and love.
