Through elements of classical Indian dance such as vocal recitation of rhythm, swaras (notes), intricate footwork, symbolic gestures and emoting, the co-creators explore ideas of Sakhi + Shakti. (Sakhi=Female Friend, Shakti=Female Power). The dancers immerse themselves in conversations, play as accomplices, leaning, supporting, overcoming obstacles through friendship and positive vibrations.
