Witness the controversial yet beautiful world of exotic dancing in Mumbai with the theatrical stage play Bombay Black.

Bombay Black is a searing play set in the bitter reality of present-day India. The show explores the harsh world of exotic dancing in Mumbai. It's a story of today told in the ancient traditions and echoes of a classical past. In many ways, the play explores men’s relationship to sex, power, commerce, culture, family, eroticism and expression.

ANOKHI PULSE TV gets onset of the theatrical stage play to talk to lead actors Kawa Ada and Anusree Roy about channeling power, betrayal and sexuality in their performances. The actors also open up about how they feel the play and its message contribute to the larger conversation of sexuality, culture and power politics within a South Asian cultural context.
