Bollywood Lectures and Dance Classes with Anjali at the NW Film Center : 11/12-11/20

Anjali is teaching two lectures and two dance classes (Virtual Classes) for the NW Film Center.

Sign up for the lectures, the dance classes, or both!

Unique to South Asian Cinema is the story of the Courtesan. A genre unto its own, some of Bollywood’s biggest films center around the story of the Tawaif (Courtesan).

From Mughal-e-Azam to Pakeezah and Umrao Jaan, we will explore the Islamicate culture of these Bollywood classics.

As India is currently descending into a Hindu fascist state, these period pieces represent a time when the history of the Mughal court culture was less of a threat to the notion of India as a nation. Tawaifs were some of the first working women to be depicted in Hindi film and continue to be featured in modern “item numbers.”

As we aim to decolonize the very word “tawaif” from its modern meaning of prostitute and restore its true definition of an honored professional and reputable elite, we’ll uncover the stories and dance of these feminist icons; though idealized and romanticized, they danced and lived outside the prescribed traditional roles of women.

The Dance classes will focus on mujra style (based on classic Kathak) from tawaif films as well as more modern sassy “item numbers”
