MaMa is a collaborative Bharatanatyam based dance project on the themes of pregnancy and early motherhood. Combining Bharatanatyam dance vocabulary with a contemporary sensibility, the two artists Kirsten Newell and Oxana Banshikova will explore, compare, and share their journeys as mothers. Their desire is to not only to create a piece which expresses their emotional and physical journey into motherhood, but also create one that voices the experiences of all mothers. Subathra Subramaniam (Artistic director of Akademi) is mentoring this project and will be joining them during the residency.
