Still I Rise is a dramatic dance-theatre presentation incorporating all elements of Bharatanatyam,
some elements of yoga, theatre, spoken word and music. The performance exemplifies the example of
Draupadi by urging every woman to awaken and realize that, especially in the current times, she
has to fend for herself. Still I Rise will intersperse Pushyamitra Upadhyay's Ab Govind na Ayenge, in Hindi poem, with Maya Angelou's, Still I Rise -
“You may write me down in history, with your bitter, twisted lies
You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust
Out of the huts of history’s shame I rise.
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain I rise”
- Maya Angelou
