This Is How I Feel Today
This Is How I Feel Today is a contemporary bharatanatyam work that acknowledges, reflects on, and viscerally feels the nuances of each day.
Currently in development, the evening-length work investigates several questions: What does it mean to observe our thoughts and emotions? What happens when we mask them or when we express them? When we embrace our feelings, can we be enlivened by them? What does it mean to feel alive? In This Is How I Feel Today, Anjal Chande assembles a mosaic of introspective text, eclectic music, and expressive movement to explore these questions.
A selection from the piece premiered at West Wave Dance Festival in San Francisco, CA on September 15, 2016.
