“Ghadar Geet: Blood and Ink”
A dance/spoken-word exploration of the Ghadar Party and intersections with contemporary acts of resistance.
In the early 1900’s, Joti Singh’s great grandfather lived in San Francisco and was the president of the Ghadar Party, a political party fighting for the independence of India from the British. Blood and Ink overlaps the political action of the Ghadar Party, with present day activism; linking the Ghadar party’s strategic diversity with today’s uniting of minority movements. The performance uses Bhangra dance, music, and spoken-word to explore its themes.
“Zindagi Ek Safar”
Explore the history of Duniya’s repertoire with some of our favorite pieces
“Wahkily”Live West African dance and drumming
Enjoy special guest, Master Dancer Youssouf Koumbassa!
Sunday’s performance is a children’s matinee, featuring “Zindagi Ek Safar” and “Wahkily” West African. The celebration continues after the performance with a children’s DJ dance party!
