A weekend workshop for artists exploring ancestral wisdom and animistic practice in the act of creation


Date: 08th, 09th & 10th February | Fri, Sat & Sun
Time: Fri | 5:30pm - 8:30pm
Sat & Sun | 10:30am - 6:00pm
Fee: Rs 3,500
Seats: Max 10 ppl
Venue: Shoonya Mari
For: This weekend is only open to artists working professionally in their fields (be it dance, theatre, visual arts or writing), to those committed to creating art, and through it, a means of balance and healing.
This workshop could become the beginning of an ongoing project.

You will explore your own practice through an animist lens. You will be guided to find new connections and resources from the spiritual world to help you create your art. You will be asked to go deeper into your work, examining it as your true self, asking questions of yourself, your perspective, your message, your vision, and also to find the guidance and direction to keep you on your path in harmony and balance.   

"Our pottery teaches the Sacred Song of cooking, and each vase wears a necklace of Prayer and Song Luci Tapahonso, Michael Lacapa.

Why do we make art? How do we dissolve into and become Love? What are the shadows we do not see that prevent us from being authentic? We will be shown reflections of ourselves, to find power and faith in our intuition, our inner voice, and song, to keep sharing Truth and Love through our work.

We will deepen our relationship with our inner Soul Song.  We will become the dancers, the actors, the painters, the writers, the creators, the storytellers from a balance within. We are celebrating Sacred Life we all are Artists of Sacred Life.

When one is dancing, all the Sounds vibrate within you. The chorus of voices blends with all these elements to make a Song to Heaven. - Tony Chavarria

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.
