Synopsis :
The women of the past, present, and future have been defined as symbols of solidarity and the backbone of society. They play transient roles from being the nurturer, the giver, the sacrificer, the lover, and the list continues. This begs the question of, has society stopped to ponder on subtle shades of women rather than defining her into convenient moulds?

Through an explorative Bharatanatyam thematic solo performance - "femiNINE- Shades that Personifies Her” Singapore’s Banupriya Ponnarasu expounds on the emotional shades of women through four poignant themes; The Creator, The Brave, The Misunderstood, and The Gentle. Each theme delves deep into the shades that personify her as women rather than a patriarchal definition of the roles she plays in societies across all eras.

Should the bravery of a woman be questioned or celebrated?

Should a woman’s love be embraced or disrespected?

Should a woman’s choice be judged based on her defining roles?

Join Banupriya and seek the answers to these pertinent questions, exploring the nine shades of a woman.
