Gentle Strength: Collaboration with Linden Dance Company (2023)

Gentle Strength

“Nothing is so gentle as real strength.”

This digital work was created through a 3-day studio collaboration between Linden Dance Company and Anjali, exploring legacy themes of softness, kindness and connection that emerged from Linden Dance Company’s LIMITLESS project. LIMITLESS creatively explored the lived experiences of people living with disabilities, specifically Function Neurological Disorder (FND). 

This work shares an intimate look at what it means to be human, to connect through shared lived experience and to stand strongly both alone and with those around you.
