“Joti Singh, artistic director of the Duniya Dance Company, has a very special connection to Ghadar history as the great-granddaughter of Ghadar leader Bhagwan Singh Gyanee. In her recent work “Red, Saffron, and Green,” a moving two-hour bhangra, spoken word, and music performance, Singh explored Ghadar history through her family’s story, using biography as an entry point to a complex history. “Knowing this history,” she explains, “makes you realize and question where we are now, and where our struggle is.””
There are many ways to support Duniya’s creative work and teaching. Your donations directly fund new costumes, and hiring professional editors to put together our videos from “Half and Halves,” and “Lanyee,” so that we can continue to promote and perform these shows. They also help us to secure rehearsal space, create our promotional materials, and cover general operating expenses. All tax-deductible donations are made through our fiscal sponsor, Dancers’ Group (dancersgroup.org).
