The Nrityanidhi Baithak - Sun, 8th Oct'23

The 'Nrityanidhi Baithak' isn't merely a wondrous experience of Kathak; but also a lingering sensation of magnificence, that only comes through the enchantment of 'Nrityanidhi Magic'! At Nrityanidhi, an event is treated as an opportunity to travel into the sublime aspects of artistic expression. An opportunity to take deeper breaths, unwind & acknowledge the true meaning of life. None of this, however, is the main goal. The goal is simply to put up a great performance. Yet somehow, the whole experience is surreal, leading the artists as well as the audience into a powerful realm of possibility & tranquility.

Film & Theater

Kamaroopigal - Thu, 5th Oct'23

Ramayana is an epic having many characters with many traits. These characters and their traits help us understand human emotions. Inspired by the Panchavati portion of Ramayana, Kaamaroopigal is a play that starts from the insult of Shoorpanki by Rama and Lakshmana and ends at Jatayu Moksha. Life has many facets to it - Righteousness, evilness, love, hatred, romance & lust. Blending Ethnicity with Modernity, this play highlights the lust of Shoorpanaki towards Rama and its repercussions there on.

Lokada olahorage - Fri, 6th Oct'23

This play is a direct discussion of the questions Tagore himself had about Western culture and the revolts against it in early 1910's. As a symbol of both these thoughts, the two main characters of this play, Siddhartha as an admirer of Western thought, and Indrajit as an opponent of that culture, the ups and downs of an innocent girl named Sharade, who is caught between them, is the core of this play. The conflicts of these two thoughts that enter into the family, where everything seemed to be romantic, are revealed through the play and how they break up not only that family but also the surrounding society becomes the core issue. This play tries to convey that only inclusive minds can build a healthy society.

Sarasatiyagallole - Sun, 8th Oct'23

The life of Savitribai Phule, who is credited as the country's first teacher, is uniquely recorded in the pages of Indian history. It is a common fact that behind every man's success there is a woman. But Jyotibaphule was behind the success of Savitribai Phule. On the one hand, the Indians were suffering from being enslaved by the British; While the entire Indian society was shaking under the grip of domestic priesthood. Savitribaiphule couple are the bright lights that have risen. The attempt to depict the events based on the life of Savitribai Phule, a heroic woman who fought against all the social ills of those times such as stupidity, illiteracy, unavailability of food, neglect of health and so on, was not successful. Do not bow down and worship me; If my ideals are right, there is a demand to implement them. The problems of pre-independence and post-independence are one and the same and an honest effort in confronting both of them is "Sarasatiyaglole".

Parijata - Wed, 11th Oct'23 - Thu, 12th Oct'23

Parijata is based on an incident from Mahabharata. The story of Parijata is quite popular. In Karnataka, it is performed as Sri Krishna Parijata, in Sannata form, which is a folk theater form. In Assam, it is performed as Parijat Haran in the Sattriya form, which is a classical dance. With our production Parijata, we propose to take selected elements from both these versions and create a completely new version, which questions why Krishna, who gave Amruta to Gods and made them immortal, had to wage war with Indra, the King of Gods for the sake of Parijata.
