Shashwati Garai Ghosh - through Odissi
Lakshmi Parthasarathy Athreya - through Bharatanatyam


~Shashwati Garai Ghosh~
Shashwati Garai Ghosh is a leading Odissi dancer of this generation who has made a niche in her field. Coming from a family of artists has made her believe that art reflects life, and now she experiences life through the art of dance. Kolkata-based Shashwati is widely acknowledged as one of the best Odissi dancers today. She is the senior-most disciple of
internationally acclaimed dancer and choreographer Sharmila Biswas, her association with her guru since 1999 has made her grow as a dancer she wanted to be in every aspect.
With many feathers on her cap, Shashwati feels fortunate to be the first recipient of Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra Yuva Pratibha Samman and Bismillah Khan Yuva awardee for Odissi
in 2016.

In Kolkata, she runs her own Odissi dance institute: Angashuddhi - Home for Odissi. This is her initiative to nurture, and pass on the experience of learning Odissi dance to the next generation, to explore more vistas and encourage and imbibe the roots of Odissi to the next generation. Shashwati has performed at the most prestigious festivals and venues in India and abroad.
Along with performances Shashwati regularly conducts workshops for schools and institutes around India. Shashwati feels fortunate to be a part of this dance fraternity - " On our shoulders, we carry the responsibility of a very rich cultural artefact, and through thoughts, ideas, and artistic endeavours we strive to do justice to this beautiful and elegant art form."

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.
