Girls are Coming out of the Woods
Bendigo Writers Festival
Tishani Doshi danced for 15 years with the acclaimed Chandralekha troupe, performing around the world. Now, as a poet, she presents her work in performance, combining the discipline of movement with powerful words. “Appearances”, she says, “must always appear to be effortless. Think of how the young speak of desire.” This presentation of her acclaimed work includes her signature poem, “Girls Are Coming Out of the Woods”. Tishani will then talk with Dan Bendrups about words and movement, how the body holds poetry within.
Bendigo Writers Festival thanks the Australia Council for this opportunity to include Indian writer Tishani Doshi on our program.
