House of Fables

ESDC commissioned classical Indian tabla player Devesh Chandra to play live for this performance, which invites the questions: How does one choose her life’s pathway?  How do the intertwinings of family drive the decision?  How bold can she be? Please enter the House of Fables.

Press Quote:

“The sensuous flow of movement, gently flavored in places by classical Indian dance, suggested life unfolding over time. Like Chandra’s music, it resisted a conventional arc—speeding up and slowing down, building and relaxing, until it came to an ending that could also have been a beginning. ”
