Acrylic painting by Manahil Bandukwala

A note from the artist:
Dance is often an art form of liberation. The dancer’s body is symbolic, and should portray liberty from a restrictive Pakistani culture. However, the blank look on her face shows that she is not entirely free of it, and that she is at the crossroads of wondering how to embrace the positive aspects of the culture – represented by her clothing – while not allowing the negatives to weigh her down.
