Presented in collaboration with The Bushwick Starr, HERE Arts Center, and Ma-Yi Theatre Company

Obie Award-winning writer/director Shayok Misha Chowdhury's recent play, Public Obscenities, was singled out as one of the best theater works of 2023 by The New Yorker. His newest work is a performance memoir created with his mother, the physicist Bulbul Chakraborty. Chakraborty's specialty is the titular science of rheology, the laws governing the malleability and movement of matter under force. Another of her loves is the poetic songs of Bengali composer Rabindranath Tagore. These songs paint glorious pictures about the drama of nature: monsoons produce drum-like thunder claps, rivers let loose their long hair into waterfalls, music flows through generations. Chakraborty learned these songs from her foremothers, then passed them on to Misha. In this concert production of reimagined Tagore compositions, an artist son studies his physicist mother while she studies the strange behavior of sand. Together, they try to understand the science and the story of how things flow.
