Talk: Dance for Social Change Ft. Mallika Sarabhai


The Division of Arts and Humanities at UC San Diego invites you to a special talk featuring one of India’s leading choreographers and activists, Mallika Sarabhai.

Event is FREE and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited—please RSVP.


Mallika Sarabhai has been one of India’s leading choreographers and dancers for over three decades. She has a Ph.D. in organizational behavior and has been the honorary director of Darpana Academy of Performing Arts for 40 years. Always an activist for societal education and women’s empowerment, Mallika began using her work for change. In 1989 she created the first of her hard-hitting solo theatrical works, “Shakti: The Power of Women.” Since then Mallika has created numerous stage productions that have raised awareness, highlighted crucial issues and advocated change, several of which having toured internationally as well as throughout India. Mallika speaks regularly at events giving motivational talks, and discusses topics ranging from Indian culture, feminism, and the use of the arts for social change to issues facing Indian women and youth today.
