Forbidden

Forbidden
Presented by Northern Stage, Dance City and Gem Arts



Why is the world scared of female sexual desire? In this powerful solo work, Aditi Mangaldas reflects on a question that is more urgent than it has ever been. Why are women the world over, from conservative as well as liberal societies; sanctioned, judged, controlled, hounded and eventually punished to have the courage to own their desire?



In a unique dance vocabulary of contemporary dance based on Kathak, Forbidden looks to explore the root of this fear and persecution. Underscored by a wide range of cultures from across the globe, Aditi will journey through emotions and experiences, reclaiming her desire.



The work is in three parts:



Awakening: Dream, Fragrant flower, Cage



Playing the Game: Denial, Adornment, Seduction, Rage



Burning: My story, Consigning to flames all that is Forbidden



Age Guidance: 16+ (Contains mature sexual themes)
