About This Show:

Overcoming family pressure and societal constructs, stand-up comedian Sonal Aggarwal takes us on a journey from fire to water, alchemizing challenges into bliss with stories, music, comedy and movement in her one-woman show.

Some of us need to get as far away as possible to hear the sound of our own thoughts. Collecting stories and songs, and learning new skills along the way, Sonal Aggarwal began traveling at a very young age. Her love of fire and movement took her around the world, only to realize the most challenging dance of fire was at home.

When we are challenged by the world, we get to experience versions of ourselves that may have otherwise never sparked into creation. This is an intimate journey of personal transformation. Once Sonal realized the fire that motivated her movement was starting to burn her from the inside out, she learned to move with the wisdom of the water. And she learned to alchemize the challenges that surrounded her into experiences of bliss.
