April was hectic as you know, with the Momentum Experimental Arts Festival and the ACT India workshop in Bangalore & Katha’koli : new age story telling workshop in Kolkata.
Also there were a couple of other very interesting things which we did.
One of was the the launch of what we call ‘The Fringe Evening’. This basic spread for the evenings are a cocktail of intimate theatre, dance performance, poetry, performance art and music. Its a place to unwind, network and recreate. The space is open to artists and showcase their work, something of experimental nature, in a totally unfettered manner. So bring your friends along for the next one. This will be fun !!
Those who were present were served a nostalgic brew of unpublished songs of Mohiner Ghoraguli, a memory which i’m sure will not be easily erased.
The of course was our latest story telling performance called ‘Horse tale’. This one was special, due to the truly brilliant performances by the cast Diniz Sanchez, Janardan Ghosh & Pradip Chattopadhay. The music and video was by Varun Desai, the creative genius behind the graphics which you also see. It was a delightful way of looking at the Horse as a performance theme. A blend of non linear story telling, dance performance and the magical flute of Pradip, melted with the sparse electronic dispensation & video art designs by Varun, to create a heady experience. The theme was the mythological character ‘Haigriva’, an avatar of Vishnu,a man with a horse’ head.
Thanks to these wonderful artists and the beautiful audience for a lovely evening.
