Show Information

Ātete – To Resist

Aotearoa New Zealand

An exploration of women and society

As a woman, do I have the right to make decisions on my body? Who decided that a woman’s body can be used as a site where power is contested and negotiated?

Ātete is a solo dance theatre choreographed by Swaroopa Prameela Unni exploring a woman’s right to bodily autonomy. This is choreographed in Mohiniyattam, a South Indian Dance form, known for its portrayal of ideal womanhood and Swaroopa will juxtapose how this very concept shaped the pattern of violence on women’s bodies. Ātete will use spoken words, movements and digital media to narrate the stories of women who resisted against the system.

Additional Music composed by Jyolsna Panicker and Sandeep Pillai from India.

“She moves like a valley river does, placid and serene on the surface, but with strength and unswerving, powerful currents underneath.” – Theatreview
