Chitrangada, The Warrior Princess

Co-Presented with Pratidhwani


ACT Theatre (map) Downtown
Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through May 20 2017


Dance drama Chitrangada follows the story of a warrior princess who decides to become less powerful, less useful, and more feminine in order to win the affections of a man. Thankfully, that's just the setup. The famous drama is based on the one-act play Chitra by renowned Bengali playwright Rabindranath Tagore, who is known for his contributions not just to theater but also to music, literature, and visual art. This production, co-presented by Seattle-based South Asian arts nonprofit Pratidhwani and directed by Moumita Bhattacharya, promises 11 forms of classical and contemporary Indian dance as well as original music. Plus, look forward to grand dance numbers performed by a cast of 40.
