What's On: Performance/Talk by Indian Transgender Dancer and More

TIFF may be wrapping up this weekend, but there's lots more to see and do besides the movies:

In Performance: Narthaki Natraj
Sept 18
Menaka Thakkar Dance Studio

Indian transgender artist Narthaki Natraj uses her art to transcend notions of identity and gender. She will perform the classical Indian dance Bharatanatyam, and follow up with a conversation highlighting the challenges she's faced in her personal and professional life.

For more information, check out the Menaka Thakkar Dance Company website.

Sept 11 to Sept 27

Karen Hines' play is "a darkly comedic tale about a woman who buys the tiniest house in the city in the perfect neighbourhood so that her mortgage will be less than her rent." But she quickly finds out that outfitting her sanctuary goes much beyond meditations on "Martha Stewart Living, Restoration Hardware and Farrow and Ball."

For more information, check out the CrawlspacePlay website.
