In signature style, Engendered, a trans-national arts and human rights organization focused on creating awareness around issues of gender and sexuality in South Asia and its Diaspora, will introduce New York dance enthusiasts to a range of performances from established and emerging dance companies and soloists, marginalized voices in dance from Pakistan and Afghanistan, and two world premieres (created that week) incorporating classical and contemporary dance with technology with visual art.

Bollywood stars descend on stage to bring this hilarious Hindi and English play for the first time in the US.  The Blue Mug is a devised piece of theatre in which actors Rajat Kapoor, Sheeba Chadha, Munish Bhardwaj and Vinay Pathak go down the path of their personal memories – their childhood, adolescence and youth, and also immediate past in their middle age.
