a million SITA-s - Credits
a Neo Bharatam presentation

Through the lens of Sita, the timeless icon of womanhood, sacrifice, beauty, faith, constance and courage, Anita refracts and re-weaves the many strands of story, epic, myth, womanism and received lore. Five women are sketched in this work... Mandodari, Ahalya, Manthara, Surpanakha and the eternal Sita, who holds them all together. After the acclaimed Neo Bharatam work of NEELAM in 2006, Anita returns to a well known and beloved theme which she colours with her palette of eclectic accents through movement, life experience and theatre training
