REVIEW FOR WAR AND PEACE
Women are the least involved, yet the most affected by men's wars - hear them out tonite.

War And Peace, a dance ballet, is being organised by the Asmita Resource Center For Women. Set up in 1991 to provide legal aid, counselling, documentation and training, Asmita has played a key role in strengthening gender-related development programs in the region.

War And Peace is a dance ballet conceived and produced to release classical music and dance from the patriarchal bindings in which they are currently trapped. Using traditional art forms, an attempt is made to present issues from a women’s perspective. War and Peace traces the effects of violence that war wreaks upon women.

Moving away from legendary figures and portraying stereotypical women, War And Peace uses modern history to trace the violence done to women during the partition, and its tragic consequences like their abduction, their rescue and their desertion. It also deals with the questions women are now asking about democracy and citizenship.

The ballet then moves to the impact of war on the global arena, and finally ends with the question, 'What is the connection between the earth, the nation, honor and the female body?'

War and Peace is exactly 74 minutes and has no breaks. Rajeswari Sainath is the lead artist, and also the choreographer. Trained in the purist Pandanallur tradition of Bharatanatyam by Indira Rajan of Chennai, Rajeswari has been performing since the age of 10. She has undergone advanced training in 'laya' (rhythm) under Guru Kaaraikkudi Mani.
