Ashrutam – The Unheard Voice is an Indian classical dance production, choreographed and directed by Surabhi Bharadwaj, an accomplished Bharatanatyam dancer. The 90-minute performance recognizes and honors the contribution of Devadasis to the Indian Performing Arts. Devadasi represents a matriarchal community of women who not only cultivated Performing Arts through the generations but were also progressive women who broke societal stereotypes several centuries ago.
With its soulful music, innovative design, and exquisite choreography, Ashrutam will take the audience on a journey to ancient India, to an era where music and dance was the way of life. Through a combination of dance and storytelling, Surabhi and her group of accomplished performing artists will share an interpretation of the Devadasis’ voice, their transition from prosperity to destitution, and honor them for their contribution to the performing arts.
