Choreographer: Sudesh Adhana, Norway
Performer: Sudesh Adhana 

untamed donkeys is an outdoor performance created by Adhana with seven dancers of Indian origin. It premiered in Oslo, Norway in June 2016. After a five-city Norwegian tour, the piece played a variety of public squares in New Delhi, India for six more performances. untamed donkeys is a reaction to recent crimes against women in India. Adhana challenged himself to get at the root of this behaviour, questioning what would motivate a man to behave to inflict sexual violence. Using images from the performances and solo movement, Adhana will introduce the audience to the work.

Sudesh Adhana was born and raised in Faridabad, India. He studied contemporary dance at the National Academy in 2009. He has also studied traditional Indian dance genres, Chhau and Kathakali. An early project by Norwegian choreographer, Sølvi Edvardsen brought him to Norway. Now based in Eina, Norway, Adhana works as a freelance dancer and choreographer. He will perform MAN by Norwegian choreographer Sølvi Edvardsen on January 25, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at the McPherson Playhouse.
