2008 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Viji will produce a dance performance that will explore issues of domestic abuse of Indian women related to dowry practices both in India and among Indian immigrant communities. Viji's decade of experience as a choreographer and dancer in productions by Indian, American, Canadian and British dance and theatre companies has enabled her to develop this project. To best convey the cultural meaning of the piece, the project will be performed using Bharatanatyam, an Indian classical dance form.
