A question of choice

wakebutterfly.jpgWomen born into poverty in India have little choice about where they will live, whom they will marry, or what they will become.

Relatively rich women in North America and Europe have an endless choice in their carreers and their relationships.

But can the latter be just as bad as the former?  

This is one of the questions explored in a new play from Montreal playwright Vishesh Abeyratne and Montreal actress, dancer and choreographer Deepali Lindblom.

It's called Wake, Butterfly, and it's inspired by Deepali's roots in an Indian village, her work with women and girls  in Bombay's brothels, and her new life in Sweden and Quebec.

Listen to Deepali Lindblom and Vishesh Abeyratne speak to Cinq à Six host Jeanette Kelly.
