‘Broken Seeds Still Grow’ employs Indian dance, art to explore a pain point in history

Since Nadhi Thekkek and Rupy Tut presented “Broken Seeds Still Grow” in its earliest incarnation, they have examined and overhauled it several times based on the responses to the multimedia production, which premiered at Flight Deck in Oakland in 2017. Now, Bay Area audiences have the opportunity to see the latest version 3 p.m. Saturday at Livermore’s Bankhead Theater. “Broken Seeds Still Grow” tells stories about the 1947 Partition of the Indian subcontinent into two separate nations — of Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan — which immediately followed India’s independence from British rule and was accompanied by one of the largest mass migrations in human history.
