2013 Artist in Residence
Seibi Lee is a principal member of the world-renowned Chitresh Das Dance Company and celebrated soloist. Hailed as “magnificent” by Dance View, Seibi has performed in award-winning productions in cities throughout the U.S. and India, including Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, REDCAT Theater in Los Angeles and National Center for Performing Arts in Mumbai. Seibi Lee is a dynamic and powerful Kathak performer and an integral part of the legacy being created by Pandit Chitresh Das. She is known for the great range and depth of her artistry: strength in technique, sophistication in musicality and depth in dramatic character interpretation.
“Seibi Lee in the double roles of Marich, the retired roué, and as Hanuman, minister to Sugreeva, the wronged prince of the Monkeys, was magnificent.”
Rita Feliciano, Dance View, Autumn 2009
“As the Indian general, Seibi Lee drew a clear character arc from subject to betrayer to fool, a remarkable achievement because her face was obscured by an unruly beard – her body language read as clearly as a book.
Moraga’s decadence and Lee’s rage clash in the climactic sword fight, performed without props and with gripping passion.”
Claudia Bauer, SFGate, Spring 2012
