This Is How I Feel Today, by Anjal Chande/The Soham Dance Project, is a memoir-style dance-theater performance that investigates how to make sense of the never-ending impulses that run through our heads, our everyday moments, and our contradictory experiences. The work is a personal peeling back of layers of privileges, convictions, and complicity, in an era that demands we hold the mirror up to ourselves. Chande shares stories about money and being brown in a stratified America, routine interactions with her grandfather, the paradox of her own art, and more. The work’s physicality, which is improvisation-based and bharatanatyam-rooted, seeks to discover a fluidity of form and self, woven together with original music, motion design, performance art, and storytelling.

Anjal Chande/The Soham Dance Project operates under the umbrella organization of Soham Dance Space, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, based in Chicago, Illinois.
