Main event Image.
 

Swaroopa presents Ātete - Resistance on Nov 30th and Dec 1st 6-7pm at The New Athenaeum Theatre . Ātete is a solo dance theatre by Swaroopa Prameela Unni introducing you to three South Asian women - Poomathai Ponnamma, Dr Rajani Thiranagama and Nayika who stood up against violence.

Swaroopa will weave through stories of caste and feudal violence, violence during war and domestic violence in New Zealand. Through these 3 segments she will connect the dots with common themes like patriarchy and how women's bodies are used as a site for revenge in this world. Ātete will be choreographed in Mohiniyattam, a South Indian Dance form, known for its portrayal of ideal womanhood and Swaroopa will juxtapose this with how this very concept has shaped the pattern of violence on women's bodies.

Ātete will use spoken words, movements and digital media to narrate their stories. Additional Music composed by Jyolsna Panicker and Sandeep Pillai from India. Tickets $15/$10 will also be available at the venue.

The event is for audience 16+ Trigger Warning: Content discusses gender violence.
