Anupama Srivastava and the InSyncKathak Dancers


“Pravaasi” translates to a migrant living away from home. The saga of a typical immigrant experience in search of a “home-away-from-home”, is through phases of wanderlust, separation anxiety, identity crisis, nostalgia, and assimilation. These phases are non-linear and unpredictable. The struggles in navigating them are real, but so are the tenacity and courage that a “pravaasi" shows in finding acceptance, a new identity, and a safe haven where they can thrive. Drawing parallels to the universal emotions of anyone who leaves the secure comfort of “home”, whether or not they cross an international border, this relatable journey is presented through Indian Classical Kathak dance.

The performance will be at Dance Mission Theater

Sunday, May 12 @ 2-3:30 PM
