A cosmic combination of storytelling, dance, aerial silks, song, myth, sound, and shadow play. Partitioned from land and love in Sindh, Rani travelled to present day India, and eventually to Turtle Island North America, also Partitioned Indigenous land. After her passing, Ranis ashes are taken from her granddaughter, Asha, who calls Rani into her dreams for answers on how to move forward after this interrupted ritual. In the cosmos with grandmothers from other places and times, Rani roots into ancestral wisdom and her life during the Partition and Independence of South Asia all the while longing for her love, Farah.
