White Shadow - T2110537196Dancer and choreographer Madhvi returns to Chapter with an emotionally charged performance based on the controversial topic of Hindu widowhood. White Shadow gives an insight into the heart wrenching injustice, trauma and institutionalised plight Hindu widows have to bear. Their fate, which is determined by the male-dominated society, is conveniently veiled by the politicians and fundamentalists under the pretext of Hindu religion. Madhvi integrates documentary video by film-maker Aparna Sharma with dance, speech and live music to sensitively open the layers of the wound of this religio-political injustice.

Elements - T824450391A new performance by Newport based choreographer Madhvi in collaboration with dancers from Independent Ballet Wales. Embracing ballet and bharatanatyam, two of the oldest and most rigorously documented dance forms, the show depicts mythic characters, expressions and philosophies of the intertwining nature of things, to create a dance as bilingual as it is daring.
