This bridge between two rich artistic universes pays a poignant homage to all women on Earth, without distinction. Uniting dance and classical piano, the show is a good opportunity to put the efforts of local organizations in the spotlight.

Women with Broken Wings, the performance

The twelve-picture performance describes twelve states of mind to share and bear witness, through art, to the condition of women with broken wings. This show aims to reveal that regardless of the religion, tradition, culture or language, a communion is possible through Beauty, Truth and Goodness. It also narrates, acknowledges and bears witness to the unspeakable pain of all women with broken wings. It focuses minds on this still too abstract reality.

The tour

The show Women with Broken Wings will go on a two-legged tour, each lasting about one month. The first leg will begin in India for the international arts festival « Vikram Sarabhai », December 28, 2012, and throughout January. The second leg will take place in Europe’s major capitals in the fall of 2013. The performance will be given not only in large concert halls and theaters, but also in institutions such as schools, hospitals, retirement homes, orphanages and prisons, in partnership with local organizations and NGO’s.
