It was a great experience to attend this play. I had somewhat of a difficult time following along since I don't speak or understand Hindi. But the parts that I did understand were fantastic. I liked the overall message of the story.

Shoonya - Centre For Art And Somatic Practices is placed at the edge where old Bangalore ends and the new Bangalore begins. The venue mimics this border as it combines old traditional thought with modernized customs. A minimal garden hangs and adds flavor to the space. Big empty spaces, something that is fast disappearing in the new world, is felt at Shoonya. It realizes that such is needed for the creative thought to prosper. Performances are held in a big open room where audience largely sits on the ground with few chairs in the background. There is space for a nice kitchen, what the space is missing presently is good coffee and tea. But looking at its lineup of events, it is definitely positioning itself as a space on its way which is going to play a pivotal role in shaping up namma city!

We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.

" I believe you look at the intention of individuals, I was confident it looks at the constituents of people. It is a very deep process. Unfortunately it has become an act of glamour....If your intention is not clear why would you want to do it? A sincere communication is what drives it. When people come to me and ask me to guide their journeys, I ask them Why? What is your intention?" - Batrice Simmons on Shamanic Practices

Come join us for a solo performance by Savita Rani tonight at 7pm.

Tickets available on Instamojo : http://imojo.in/2jbss7 | Payable at Venue

RIP is divided into three parts. In the first part of the performance, a woman speaks about her reasons for celebration, which revolves entirely around her personal life. She narrates the stories behind the celebration. And, she talks about her man and his decision of travelling to the forest.

In the second part, the woman has an idea for acting, in front of her man, to succeed in convincing him to take her along, to fulfill her deep-seated desire of travelling. This part is spiked with satire, on culture, and creates a lot of humor. It is interactive, dependent on the participation and active involvement of the audience.

The third part is about the womans travel experiences and the chain of events that unfold in the forest. It targets rudimentary patriarchal thinking. It also includes feelings, opinions and questions that are paramount to life.

RIP culminates on a high note, celebrating the womans liberation.

Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices Fri, 10 Mar
Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices shared Gathr's event.
Taleem Yatra: The Story & Music of Joel Veena
Taleem Yatra: The Story and Music of Joel Veena

With tabla accompaniment by Gurunandan Molahalli

We find origin stories of musicians making their way to their calling to be some of the most serendipitous, unlikely and heart-warming ever. Joel came by to Delhi all the way from chilly Vermont on a study trip exactly a decade back, found a CD of the famed maestro of the mohan veena, Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and entranced by its twangy notes, Joel knew he had found his calling. Since then, under the tutelage of Dr. Ranjan Kumar, Joel has quietly honed his craft, performing his pieces around India and the United States.

On Monday, Joel presents an evening of music played on the Indian slide guitar which tells the story of his singular journey in and as a performer of Hindustani classical music. In this performance, Joel intersperses the stories of his diverse experience with the musical compositions that have comprised the substance of his Taleem, training, thus far.

The concert starts at 7 pm. Get there 15 mins before it begins so you can come say hi to Joel.

RSVP at https://goo.gl/forms/2ZmurGR92n4Dwmiw2, the policy is to pay at the door.

The suggested donation is Rs300 Rs500 per person, please pay what you can. All money goes directly to the musicians.

==================

About the Collaboration

==================

#HouseConcertBangalore is about clocking off and gathering for mind-bending original music and arts, and Gathr is all about social experiences that are authentic, enriching and experimental, so it was only inevitable that wed work together after the remarkable work that Manu has done in Delhi with House Concert Delhi.

Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices is one of the de facto supporters of arts and somatic practices in the city, having done so much for Bangalores cultural and aesthetic experiences. Its a lovely space near Lalbagh, come and check it out.

|| WHAT A Masterclass in Embodied Practice by Mandeep Raikhy

|| WHEN Thursday, 16th March | 10:30 am - 2:30pm

|| Open to Trained Dancers

|| ABOUT

EMBODIED PRACTICE

Resisting an affinity with any particular movement aesthetic, the workshop look at dance training through the lens of movement principles, patterns and body connections. Starting with conditioning the body through pilates and Bartenieff fundamentals, the workshop will subsequently enable the students to carry these connections into simple weight shifts such as walking, running, turning, rolling and crawling. With a focus on finding and maintaining the neutral spine through core activation and balanced musculature, the class will also include strength work that help fire the big as well as the small muscles that make neutrality in the spine possible during all kinds of weight shifts. Open to people with movement experience.
