The O'Shaughnessy with the Ananya Dance Company


The O'Shaughnessy, at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, will commission the Minneapolis-based Ananya Dance Company and its artistic director, Ananya Chatterjea, to develop and stage a new production called "Shaatranga." Meaning seven-colored in Chatterjea's native Benjali, the work will address women's roles, work and global commerce through the metaphor of blue jean processing. The 18-month collaboration will bring together St. Kate's students and staff and refugees living in the Twin Cities.
