Temple of Fine Arts & Atta Galatta presents Shabari Rao and Kafeel Jafri in the Yati Gati Series.
The Yati Gati series curated by Temple of Fine Arts and Atta Galatta, brings to you a double ticket event on Apr 19th, 2019. The evening will start with a contemporary dance performance 'BodyMine' by Shabari Rao, followed by a Dastan by Kafeel Jafri. The evening will take the audience through a reflection on the relationship between the 'person' and their 'body' and how the relationship between the two are shaped or formed?
'Staging the dialogue between the artist and the audience' has remained the focus of the Yati Gati series. We will have a moderated dialogue through the evening and a short panel discussion after the performances.
