Self Love is a solo charting the innerscape of an Indian-American yoga teacher working in the western wellness industry that commodifies individual happiness. The lone dancer manifests as a faddish Yoga Barbie – an embodiment of the white, female gentrification of yoga. Over the course of the work, she performs an abstract narrative depicting her own relationship to self love as both a life sustaining and destructive force.
Self Love is co-commissioned by Gibney, with support from the Howard Gilman Foundation, and Domino. Self Love is part of a new work being created for “Dopolavoro” flagship of the Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture project.
