SERVANT OF THE WIND is a dynamic investigation of psycho-physical presence and embodied memory using storytelling styles from the United States and India. Inspired by time Annalisa spent in southern India studying kalaripayattu, an ancient Indian martial art that was almost destroyed during the British occupation, SERVANT examines cycles of memory and the passing on of history and tradition.

    A wonderful meld of American and Indian theatrical traditions beautifully explored through a passionate script. Employs dance, kalaripayattu movement, music, movie, projection, and story in a true multimedia experience.
