Sadness is a wicked serpent coiled up in the dark. It can kill itself with its own venom and also, crawl, stretch, climb, sway, dance, shed skin, and transform. Is suffering a harborer of our creative powers? Do we live in it on purpose? Anjoli Chadha was born in Brooklyn and raised in India. She started performing in India with cabaret band Emperor Minge, as the dancing member of the band. Since then she’s trained in martial arts like kalaripayattu and capoeira, ballet and more recently Samba. Her research in capoeira and samba had recently taken her to Brazil. She is interested in the topic of archetypes (warrior and seductress) and how summoning the energies of different archetypes into the body empowers the individual spiritually and psychologically.
