Sunny Jain: Love Force
Sunny Jain’s Love Force centers on the Punjabi dhol drum, blurring the lines of performer and audience by creating a collective effervescence. Drawing from tradition, rituals and in the moment musical improvisation, the show reflects the ethos of Leo Tolstoy, B.R. Ambedkar, Martin Luther King, Jr, Audre Lorde and Reverend Dr. William J. Barber II.
