In Expiration

Contrapuntal percussive dance and stirring vocalizations come together in this highly rhythmic performance blending Kathak, Bharatanatyam and contemporary dance forms. Composed by Derrick Spiva and Ian Smith and enhanced by live music from bassist Mark Gutierrez, Sheetal Gandhi and Ulka Mohanty investigate issues of personal justice and identity, the imperative of breath, and the repercussions of race-fueled violence.
