The Chicago DanzTheatre Ensemble is set to start its new show, Bindis and Bruises on Friday, March 4. The show was conceived and choreographed by Priya Narayan who is a trained classical Indian dancer. Ellyzabeth Adler is the director, co-writer and co-choreographer for the performance.

Bindis and Bruises is part of the dance theater’s social justice mission of “performance with a purpose.” The ensemble hopes the show will break the silence about “dating and domestic violence” in the country.
Performances will run every Friday and Saturday from March 4-19 at the Ebenezer Lutheran Church at 8 p.m. Tickets are available on danztheatre.org.
