Event description
"Heirlooms II" is the second in a series of installations by SPRNG VLVT combining poetry, dance and live music.

About this Event

Following the format of “Heirlooms I”, this iteration will begin with poetry and storytelling and culminate in a set of songs. Using the rich and unique backdrop of GG's Social Club, Ankita retells the myth of Draupadi, an ancient princess who is lost by her 5 husbands in a game of dice and disrobed in the center of the kingdom. Mishra is constantly trying to find ways to connect her two cultures and in this piece, finds a comparison between ancient Indian mythology and current American Reproductive politics. In becoming Draupadi, Ankita raises questions about agency, self-worth, the public vs. private feminine body, and the slippery function of clothing as both protection and provocation.
