Abhinaya Dance Company of San José presents ‘Si Se Puede’, choreographed by Artistic Director Mythili Kumar and featuring the company who will be accompanied by live music by master musicians. Presented in the classical Bharatanatyam idiom, the concert portrays the struggles of Cesar Chavez and his fight for farmworker rights. The concert is presented in association with San Jose Multicultural Arts Guild.  The company presents vivid portrayals of Cesar Chavez’s life, his struggles as a hardworking farmworker, his awareness of Gandhi’s non-violent principles and his leadership through forming the United Farmworkers union fighting for the rights of the farmworkers. The fight for decent wages and working conditions continues to this day.

“It is ironic that those who till the soil, cultivate and harvest the fruits, vegetables, and other foods that fill your tables with abundance have nothing left for themselves.”… Cesar Chavez
