As a performer, Sarabhai first gained international notice when she played the role of Draupadi in Peter Brook’s epic production of The Mahabharata . Performing the role first in French and later in English, she delighted critics and audiences alike in France, Australia, Japan, Scotland, and throughout North America. Since then, Sarabhai’s own choreography has helped to expand the vocabulary of classical Indian dance, blending the traditional with the contemporary. Since she created her seminal 1989 solo work, Shakti: The Power of Women , Sarabhai has also continued to fuse her art with her role as an activist for societal education and women’s empowerment, using dance to raise awareness and advocate for change.
