“…a meditation…on Partition and its relationship to the immigrant experience…”
— Brandon Yu, San Francisco Chronicle, 2017
Experience the beauty of belonging with the upcoming performance Broken Seeds Still Grow, created by Nadhi Thekkek and Rupy C. Tut. This exquisite and eye opening show brings you through the journey of the 1947 British India Partition that we still see the effects of and parallels for today. Join us in experiencing & growing from the past 75 years of Partition through this performance of Bharatanatyam dance, mixed visual media, spoken word, and much more. The depth and creativity of this special show has created a universal platform that everyone can relate to. The American immigrant experience is one that impacts so many walks of life, and that impact is truly felt through this production.
Thekkek and Tut showcase their talents of dance and visual arts onstage through this emotional, impactful performance. The story of the largest mass migration in history is not known by many, but it should be, and Tut and Thekkek share it in such a moving way. The two touch on how our society has “Been struggling to build empathy across political, cultural, racial, and religious divides; this creative inquiry may create a unique space for a discourse on how both internal personal prejudices and openly hateful rhetoric can affect the community at large.” (Rupy C. Tut and Nadhi Thekkek). Listening to and experiencing this performance connects one to the story of Partition directly or indirectly – so many cultures and families have been affected by a type of partition or migration, and those experiences can be funneled through this performance, connecting us through our shared humanity and giving so many people a place to belong and feel a great sense of community.
