Mohona: Estuaries of Desire


Sep 20, 2013
08:00 PM until 09:30 PM


This show is part of Women of Substance at St. Catherine University. Created as a multi-disciplinary, total theater experience that invites audience participation, “Mohona” relates stories and layers images of women’s work and lives in relation to water to reflect and pose questions about access to this natural resource and the systemic violence against people that results when it is subject to private control.  Audience members will be invited to participate in the performance by contributing a wish, a memory, a thought, or a prayer to the metaphoric river, and to join the dancers in the final Procession movement – led by the four goddess lanterns – on stage and throughout the theater in a metaphoric call to action.

Choreographed by Minnesota’s Ananya Chatterjea with an original score by composer Greg Schutte, “Mohona” will feature collaborative elements by vocalists Ndosi and Pooja Goswami Pavan, lighting designer Mike Wangen, and costume and set designer Annie Katsura Rollins.
