Gardeners of Stories (Arpita Bajpeyi, Vridhhi Chaudhry and Meera Kanageswaran) are the salon’s organizers and invite you to Paalam: A Reimagining South Asian Dance Salon Series. This November, they are featuring works by international and Toronto-based artists whose art explores stories we don’t typically encounter in South Asian dance: experiences of life on tea plantations, queerness, postpartum depression and much more.

Paalam has been made possible by the generous support of the Centre for Drama, Theatre & Performance Studies at the University of Toronto, the York Centre for Asian Research, and the Institute for Dance Studies at CDTPS.

Join us for the first event in this series—Paalam Virtual Dance Sharings and Roundtable—on 12 November 2023 (virtual)
