The second edition of the ongoing three-part lecture demonstration series, Across Cultures, that aims to examine the influences and potential of blending disparate art forms to create a new, artistically curated, holistic experience.
The speakers will delve into their work in Les deux Amis / Two Friends - a French play stages the imaginary meeting of French fables writer La Fontaine with Pilpay, the legendary author of the Indian Panchatantra, embodied by a French Baroque actor and an Indian Kathak dancer holding a dialogue through their fables. The play is quintessentially an exploration of the space between mudras and baroque gestures, the space between baroque music and Indian alaps, a meeting of cultures, costumes, ideas, performance and art forms of India and France.
Join us for this extraordinary cross-cultural exchange, Across Cultures: Fusing Identities Through Art, as the fables spring to life, unveiling a surprising harmony between two distinct schools of art and a special live performance.
