Created by Nadhi Thekkek (Artistic Director, Nava Dance Theatre) and visual artist Rupy C. Tut (Art by Rupy, Oakland, CA) Broken Seeds Still Grow is a multi-disciplinary dance theatre production exploring the continuing impact of the 1947 British India Partition. Through Bharatanatyam dance and mixed visual media, they examine the hyphenated-American, immigrant experience, linking it to the displacement of their ancestors during Partition. This creative inquiry sources poetry, eyewitness accounts, and current events to understand the current political climate while reflecting on what it means to belong somewhere. Meant to be an intergenerational experience to spark conversation about “what is home?” throughout living rooms, kitchens, playgrounds, and workplaces around the Bay Area.
