About the Plays:

The Fish Eyes Trilogy is an audacious trio of one woman dance-plays from award-winning playwright, dancer, choreographer and performer, Anita Majumdar. Three coming-of-age solo shows that follow the lives of teenage girls who attend the same high school and process their real-life dilemmas through dance, while exploring the heartaches of youth and the meaning of heritage.

Fish Eyes is the story of Meena, a classically trained Indian dancer who, despite being obsessed with Bollywood movies and her dance career, just wants to be like the rest of her high-school friends. When she develops a massive crush on Buddy, the popular boy at school, Meena contemplates turning down an incredible opportunity to pursue him, even if he barely notices her.

Boys With Cars follows Naz, also a classically trained Indian dancer, who dreams of getting out of small town Port Moody to attend the University of British Columbia. But when Buddy causes a stir over Naz at school, Naz's university plans begin to crumble quickly.

Let Me Borrow That Top centres on Candice, a girl who appropriates Meena's Indian dance skills and bullies Naz after a nasty rumour spreads through the halls of their high school. But like her two enemies, Candice shares a passion for Indian dancing, and has just been accepted to the Coventry School of Bhangra. Will she leave behind the comforts of home to pursue her dreams?
