Open Space: Kathak Performance

We are back with one more event under Open Space and gladly inviting you to a spectacular dance demonstration, "Kathak Performance" featuring the talented Ms Savani Sahasrabudhe with her mesmerizing choreography. Savani Sahasrabudhe started learning Kathak at the tender age of 6 under the guidance of Guru Jonaki Raghavan for 12 years and attained the prestigious Visharad. Later, she pursued her Bachelor's in Performing Arts, excelling under the renowned Guru Shama Tai Bhate from Savitribai Phule Pune University, securing the top position in her course. This would be an interactive Kathak performance, blending explanations and demonstrations.

What's On your Plate?

Team Art@IITGN and Awaam, bring to you an opportunity to revisit your relationship with food, memories and its transformative capabilities! We are excited to present our collaboration with the talented folks at Untitled Kitchen, inviting everyone to be a part of a community dining at IIT Gandhinagar on 13th January 2024. We request the IITGN community to support the artist's vision and experiments by filling out this form, to confirm your presence at the dining. This will allow us to have a rough estimate of the quantity of food that needs to be prepared! In addition to the performative cooking and dining, we will be exhibiting documentation of ?Diri Dulsunum?, a secondary funerary rite of the Ho Adivasi community in West Singhbhum, Jharkhand where commensality is central to their practice.

Scrapyard Theatre Presents: Badal Sircar's Juloos

We see processions (Juloos) every day. Willingly or unwillingly, we all are a part of one or another procession. Does the procession show us the way or mislead us? Where do processions start and where do they head to? Michhil (Juloos in Hindi), widely seen as Badal Sircar?s most iconic production, is an excellent example of Third Theatre. First produced in 1974, it is still performed in several languages, within India, across the subcontinent, and even by the Indian diaspora abroad. Many typical features of Third Theatre are found in Michhil, such as intimacy and direct communication with the audience, satirically critical commentary on the status quo, the vision of a just and equitable society, a collage-like juxtaposition of sequences, the actors? bodies forming a range of sculptural images, and humor. Open & Free for all. We request all to register for the event, for the convenience of the organizers. Registration Link

We are thrilled to get Open Space again and gladly inviting you to a spectacular dance performance evening, "Manipuri dance: redefining the gender spectrum" featuring talented artists Parna Chakraborty, Kankana Singh and Tanisha Bhadury with their mesmerizing performances.
