Shades of the Mind
Friday Feb. 23, 2024 at 7:00pm
Akron Civic Theatre

Akron Soul Train is pleased to present the work of resident artist, Sujatha Srinivasan, founder and artistic director of Shri Kalaa Mandir - Center for Indian Performing Arts.  As a master artist, choreographer, performer, and teacher in Bharatanatyam dance, a beautiful classical Indian art form, Sujatha has been a tireless advocate for the history and depth of South Asian artistic culture for over 28 years.  She has presented on several stages including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Public Theater, and Playhouse Square. Sujatha recently won the  prestigious Cleveland Arts Prize in 2022 for her contribution to the vitality and stature of the arts in our region.

 

Her work spans from the traditional to modern, often focusing on socially relevant issues.  In “Shades of the Mind” she unpacks gradations of human existence. The Mysterious Charioteer character explores emotions of the mind navigating the desires and temptations that surround them. Sujatha will be accompanied by six classically trained dancers in aesthetically designed costumes that speak to the story lines. The choreographic work will take on social issues such as women's rights, racism, greed, exploitation, and immigration, tying each larger problem to its deep systemic roots in every individual.

 

Don’t miss your chance to experience this international treasure and enjoy Sujatha’s narrative in Shades of the Mind as she “brings creative compositions to life with dynamic rhythm, evocative mime and inimitable choreography”.
