Biography:

Rubena Sinha is a storyteller based in Toronto, Ontario, who uses her extensive knowledge and experience of South Asian myth and dance to weave stories of life, love, heros and demons. Using movement and text, Rubena creates a world in which the listener encounters talking animals, her family members, and Gods and Goddesses of the Hindu pantheon. Her stories are often interwoven to incorporate her own personal experience as an immigrant. The audience is encouraged to participate in her stories via movement, making her performances accessible on many levels and for many age groups. With a wide range of storytelling performance experience from large stages to intimate school classrooms, Rubena is able to put together a program or workshop that is specifically suited to the age and cultural background of the audience, as well as touching on the larger themes that are at play in the viewer’s lives.
