Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble delves into the rarely-discussed issue of domestic and dating violence against Indian-American women in Bindis and Bruises, one of a pair of powerful pieces they'll be performing at at Ebenezer Luther Auditorium. Choreographed by troupe member Priya Narayan, the work mixes traditional Indian and current dance, along with Hindu and modern storytelling techniques, to shine light on a little-explored problem. Its multicultural cast also offers a beacon of hope through shared experience and overcoming shame. Also on the bill is Encuentros, which examines gender equality through the story of one couple's life together, incorporating dance, sound, text and even acrobatics.
