Dance New work Minnesota premiere

Life forms flicker in and out in the circuitous streets and despair-laden corners of the Broken City. Who were the folks who danced all night at the Global Feminist Funk Underground Club, now haunted and empty? Who were the people who lived their lives fully here before they disappeared? How did they labor? Love?

The artists of Ananya Dance Theatre unravel time and unwritten histories in Sutrajāl as a poet, one of the few surviving humans in this place, bears witness.

Imagined and choreographed by Ananya Chatterjea in collaboration with the artists of Ananya Dance Theatre, with the support of Stage Director Marcus Young, guest artists Tish Jones and Douglas R. Ewart, and guest dramaturg Sharon Bridgforth.

Sound design and score composition by Renée Copeland. Lighting design by Kevin A. Jones. Costume design by Annie Cady. Scenery design by Chelsea Warren.

Sutrajāl is supported by an Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts; the Ford Foundation; The MAP Fund, supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; the McKnight Foundation; and the Imagine Fund. Sutrajāl was developed with support from the Urban Bush Women Choreographic Center Initiative funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Metro Regional Arts Council and the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
