The theme was “Pehchaan,” a word that loosely translates to “identity” in several South Asian languages. There was a guest performance from AMJ Bhangra, an all-female Bhangra team from the Philly area. The show featured video interviews of Mawrters sharing what South Asia means to their identity, as well as the SAS Board explaining what South Asian identity means to them. Alexa Sanyal ’17 photographed the performers getting ready backstage, including members of Mayuri, Bryn Mawr’s South Asian Fusion Dance Team. Minahil Naveed ’17 provided photos of the performance, and SAS Co-President Palak Bhandari’s father helped with group shots.
