it was a truly soulful and mesmerising satsang.. we were in the flow and Mukhtiyaar Ali was so child like and so much fun to listen to and enjoy. his excellent command over his vocal cords and the amazing voice quality whether loud or soft conveyed the emotions of the songs beautifully. I look forward to many more such soulful events.

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.

Two Sanskari Girls is a spoken-word tale of two women from opposite sides of the world, told through theatrical poetry, song, and movement.

This one-hour performance defies expectations, tiptoes and then redefines the lines of Sanskar and what it means to raise wild-spirited women. The show cuts through cultures, conversations, things we dont dare say, and will leave the audience thinking and chuckling at the same time.

Nupur adds deliciously revolutionary ingredients to the age-old recipe of 'How to Raise Your Daughter', while Kate boldly questions our collective perceptions of women in juxtaposing characters. Both speak from their own experiences, intertwining words and styles in a powerful exchange.

The show also brings cameos by Karunya Srinivasan, writer and dancer, and Shilok Mukkati, a Kannada poet and an award-winning trans-rights activist.

The duo, Nupur and Kate, have performed more than 20 shows together in cities of Bangalore, Mumbai and Jaipur. To continue their journey, they are taking their show on the road to Europe via Paris and Berlin. Their last performance together in Bangalore is a must-watch.

|| Details ||

WHAT: A spoken-word, song and movement performance

WHEN: Friday, 7th July | 7pm

FOR: Open to all

FEE: Early bird tickets till 30th June | Rs 200

Post 30th June | Rs 300

Nupur Saraswat is a passionate stage performer, who brings an electric energy on stage along with her bold words. Her volatile words and performance style has been praised by Javed Akhtar and Rahul Bose - both of whom she has shared a stage with in 2016. Along with performing for big stages like UN Women, TEDx, India Conversations, Under 25 Summit, and DPS schools, she also provides workshops on 'Use of Stage Skills in the Boardroom'.

Her vision is to merge the corporate and art space into one tantalizing business strategy. Nupur, who is from Singapore, also runs a collective where she curates artists (ask her about your artist needs at Beasts of Bed and Battlefield). At an age of 22, she is a lot of things - a recruitment consultant, an environmental engineer, a writer, and a spoken-word artist. But more than anything else, she is "that girl with a flower in her curly hair".

Kate Black-Regan is a performance artist, vocalist, and poet engaged in expressive art therapy. At the root of her work is a deep trust in the power of transformative growth through creative expression. Her art explores the potential to reclaim, re-story, and re-envision roles and narratives with a dynamic feminist lens. Originally from Philadelphia, US, she collaborates with a wide range of creative makers globally, facilitates multidisciplinary workshops, and is currently residing in Bangalore, India. Know more about her and her work, here: www.kateblackregan.com

Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices Sat, 17 Jun
Once every month we gather together with Vipul Rikhi to learn a song of Kabir or another mystic poet, in the spirit of sharing, openness and togetherness. Entry is open and free, but restricted to a limited number of participants on a first-come first-serve basis. In a small, intimate gathering learning is better.

No prior training or experience in singing is required. The idea is to come together in the spirit of Kabir and Bhakti, and delve deep into one song - its words, meanings and also singing it together as is done in many folk traditions across the country.

We send out the song text in Roman transliteration for those who require it, so you can read and sing along. We also discuss the song and possible meanings in English as well. The exercise is meant to sing together and participate in that energy, not to attempt or achieve perfect individual singing.

|| Details ||

WHAT: A learning and singing session. A 'satsang' of sorts.

WHEN: Sun, 25th June

TIME: 3:30pm - 6:00pm

FOR : Open to all

FEE: Free entry but RSVP is mandatory

|| Facilitator ||

Vipul Rikhi is a poet, fiction writer, translator and singer. His work with Kabir Project includes extensive writings and translations in the field of Bhakti, Sufi and Baul poetry. In the course of these journeys he has developed a deep love for singing mystic poetry in the folk music traditions. In his satsangs and performances, he likes to bring equal emphasis to the poetry and its resonances in our lives as to the sheer beauty and simplicity of many of the folk tunes. He is also the author of a novel, and collections of poetry and short stories.

Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices Wed, 14 Jun
In this workshop, you will get an introduction on how to start the voyage towards your true, natural voice.

The voice is the gateway to the soul. Our emotional and spiritual sense of identity is deeply connected to the voice, and vice versa. Our lifestyles, and the psychological effects of our life experiences (especially repressive, traumatic ones) all affect our voices. Over time, we develop various tensions and wrong breathing patterns, as a result of these experiences and lifestyle choices, and separate the voice from the rest of our bodies, while in reality the true voice is manifested through the whole body, and originates in the same centre of energy and life-force.

We will start with gentle but deep breath awareness, focusing on relaxing and opening up the mouth, jaws and throat, and providing breath support to the voice.

We will then move on to humming, vocalizing sounds, harmony and connecting the body and voice through rhythmic movement and steps. We will use vocal improvisations and aspects of various voicing techniques. Hence we will learn how to awaken the 'body-voice', i.e. how to provide more fullness and resonance to the voice with the whole upper body.

In the final phase, we will work with songs, musical sound and text to discover deep connections between voice, body and imagination. The focus in this segment will be on how to give greater precision and intention to our voice, and how to infuse layers of emotion and expression, and how to embody the voice and project our whole presence through it.

The session will end with meditation and chanting.

You will gain an understanding of how to relax and open up the physical apparatus of voice production, and to achieve a stronger respiration technique to support the voice.

You will take home a repeatable set of vocal exercises.

You will gain an understanding of the deeper, inner connections between body, voice and imagination.

You will have an insight on how the voice can become a pathway towards an inner journey and spiritual deepening.

As the session involves physical movement, please come in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. Do not wear wristwatches, socks or jewelry during the session.

Bring a short text (lines from a favourite poem or a childhood memory) of about seven or eight lines in any language. Also come with a song you know by heart, such as a folk song or a lullaby.

The session is for actors, storytellers, dancers and performance artists who wish to gain a deeper insight into the voice, musicians, performing professionals such as jugglers, fire artists, DJs, MCs, radio and TV presenters, teachers, corporate professionals and anyone else interested in the beauty, power and creative potential of the human voice.

What: A workshop about connecting/working with your voice.

For: Open to All

The Awakened Voice
In this workshop, you will get an introduction on how to start the voyage towards your true, natural voice.

The voice is the gateway to the soul. Our emotional and spiritual sense of identity is deeply connected to the voice, and vice versa. Our lifestyles, and the psychological effects of our life experiences (especially repressive, traumatic ones) all affect our voices. Over time, we develop various tensions and wrong breathing patterns, as a result of these experiences and lifestyle choices, and separate the voice from the rest of our bodies, while in reality the true voice is manifested through the whole body, and originates in the same centre of energy and life-force.

We will start with gentle but deep breath awareness, focusing on relaxing and opening up the mouth, jaws and throat, and providing breath support to the voice.

We will then move on to humming, vocalizing sounds, harmony and connecting the body and voice through rhythmic movement and steps. We will use vocal improvisations and aspects of various voicing techniques. Hence we will learn how to awaken the 'body-voice', i.e. how to provide more fullness and resonance to the voice with the whole upper body.

In the final phase, we will work with songs, musical sound and text to discover deep connections between voice, body and imagination. The focus in this segment will be on how to give greater precision and intention to our voice, and how to infuse layers of emotion and expression, and how to embody the voice and project our whole presence through it.

The session will end with meditation and chanting.

You will gain an understanding of how to relax and open up the physical apparatus of voice production, and to achieve a stronger respiration technique to support the voice.

You will take home a repeatable set of vocal exercises.

You will gain an understanding of the deeper, inner connections between body, voice and imagination.

You will have an insight on how the voice can become a pathway towards an inner journey and spiritual deepening.

As the session involves physical movement, please come in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. Do not wear wristwatches, socks or jewelry during the session.

Bring a short text (lines from a favourite poem or a childhood memory) of about seven or eight lines in any language. Also come with a song you know by heart, such as a folk song or a lullaby.

The session is for actors, storytellers, dancers and performance artists who wish to gain a deeper insight into the voice, musicians, performing professionals such as jugglers, fire artists, DJs, MCs, radio and TV presenters, teachers, corporate professionals and anyone else interested in the beauty, power and creative potential of the human voice.

Women in the Workplace: A 1-Day Workshop
This workshop, although open to all women, focuses on those working in any kind of organisation/team. The workshop is based on the need to be in a neutral but supportive environment which recognises the frequent inequity of the workplace, and provides the participants with tools, practices and skills to be able to negotiate that inequity.

Hopefully, through this, the participants are able to look at 'being' or 'doing' from a more authentic place.

With the help of drama and movement based tools, we will help women look at the ideas of presence, confidence and visibility as things they can develop in order to make their time at the workplace more effective and easy. The workshop - through its use of physical modalities of dance and theatre - also looks at posture, alignment and body well-being as a part of confidence and presence, which are closely interlinked with self-awareness and assuredness.
