Noorani Dance presents:

Heartistry Video Series - Episode 2: Social Change through heARTivism

Featuring: Farah Yasmeen Shaikh, Alicia Nascimento, Athena Nair, Aysha Upchurch, Brinda Guha & Nadhi Thekkek

Building on the theme of Heartistry, this dynamic group of women of color dance artists will be in conversation with Farah Yasmeen Shaikh, each bringing a passion, compassion and commitment displayed through their art AND their activism. This beautiful and powerful combination is what we call heARTivism.

As we honor and celebrate the commitment that each artist has made to advocate for equality and justice, we will take a deeper look at how they engage in conversations, dance making and activism through performances, teaching and choreographing – often spotlighting various systems of oppression such as racism, casteism, colorism, gender inequality, classism, religious divide and so much more – learning from their approach, their process and the outcomes.

On April 7, the audience will also have have the opportunity to pose questions in real time to the artists.

There's more! Episode 2 will lead up to Episode 3 in June, which will welcome special guest, Valarie Kaur – a seasoned civil rights activist, award-winning filmmaker, lawyer, and faith leader, into the conversation and premiere a new collaborative dance work featuring Farah and all of the dance artists, Valarie Kaur and renowned musical artist, Annette Philip.

Tickets: Suggested donation $15-$200 / Pay what you can

Note: DONATIONS OF $75 OR MORE WILL RECEIVE A LINK TO EPISODE 2 & 3

What is Heartistry?

What is Heartistry?

In February 2020, we launched our podcast the Heartistry Talk Show, welcoming guests from around the globe that are bringing a passion, compassion and commitment to what they are doing, into a conversation with Farah Yasmeen Shaikh about how we are each finding an artistic flow with our heart leading the way.

Bringing these conversations to a video series, Noorani Dance will return to recorded live performances and at times, create anew, seeking to reimagine our work as artists during this new normal as a catalyst for collaboration, creativity, and conversation.
