R.K.Narayan’s ‘Swami and Friends’ was a fixture in school for many of us in our 20s and 30s. This story about three friends captured our imagination, especially given the limited English literature by Indian authors which we were exposed to. The joy of Anubhava is inviting you to take a trip down memory lane to experience this book now as adults!!! We are happy to announce a workshop to explore ‘Swami and Friends’ through art forms for adults (18 ) on the 23rd of February at Café Down The Alley, Banashankari.
This workshop will involve deep character analysis. Imagine a ‘role play’ exercise between Swami and Rajam to get to the core of who they were. Imagine doing character sketches based on your reading of the book. The workshop will also give participants an opportunity to reflect on the author’s choices. What if you could write this book in 2020? What changes would you make? Imagine writing a chapter from another character’s point of view. The workshops will allow us to recreate the world of Malgudi! Imagine depicting the story but through your own pictures. How about the music? Can we express our understanding of the book by becoming music directors? Join us on the 23rd of February to participate in all this and much more!! Let’s go back to our childhood one more time!!
