Friday & Saturday, 8pm
Bahu-Beti-Biwi is a powerfully rhythmic dance-theater solo by Sheetal Gandhi, wrapping North Indian music traditions and family characters into a contemporary exploration that slides between humorous portraiture and active resistance. A solo tour-de-force, Gandhi transitions from one character to the next, merging dance, live singing and percussive text based on the bols of the Indian percussive table to an original score by Joe Trapanese.
Sheetal Gandhi's career has spanned genres and disciplines for the last fifteen years. She worked as a creator and performer in Cirque du Soleil's Dralion, and toured with the international cast performing over 700 shows. Gandhi was Co-Artistic Director of the modern dance company, California Contemporary Dancers in San Francisco from 2001 to 2004, and played a leading role in the Broadway production of Bombay Dreams in 2004. She is currently touring her solo dance-theater work, Bahu-Beti-Biwi.
