Divya Kasturi presents TOVARNAM WITH LOVE, a contemporary performance interweaving dance, personal exploration and study into the history of the Varnam.

Notions of the text being alive through generations of dancing bodies, the mystery of the ‘Dance of Breath’ of Lord Shiva in his form as Tyagesa (Lord of Charity) and a different approach to the processional dance are some of the fragments of creation being explored.

October 30 - November 1, 2019 Bangalore

India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) in collaboration with Bangalore International Centre
presents PAST FORWARD: CELEBRATING CRITICAL PRACTICES. This festival brings together over 40 diverse artistic expressions under six themes of Interrogating Pasts, Confluence of Forms, Engaging Communities, Making Meanings of Myths, Thinking Audiences and Imagining Futures through panel discussions, performances, film screenings,  workshops and  exhibitions.
- CONFLUENCE OF FORMS
Art forms have always existed and thrived in each other's company. They have evolved through mutual influence and nurturing. Artists working in specific art forms often engage in others to challenge themselves, make experiments, learn new skills or get inspired with unusual possibilities of outcomes. The projects showcased under this theme were in part born out of the desire to see the results of two or more forms in conversation with each other. While some of these projects borrow and build through their respective techniques and methodologies, others provoke new ways of looking at making work. Engage with this theme through film, dance, art, theatre and music.
Works of the following grantees will be showcased:
Panel Discussion: Barun Chattopadhyay, Jyoti Dogra, Madhuja Mukherjee, Umashankar Manthravadi, Justin McCarthy (Moderator)
Exhibition: Dhruv Jani / Performance: Jyoti Dogra
Film Screening: Anitha Balachandran, Avik Mukhopadhayay, Prantik Basu
Workshop: Preethi Athreya
- THINKING AUDIENCES
Far from being passive consumers, the audiences have always played a powerful role in shaping the trajectory of arts practices. They have encouraged practitioners to chart new paths, discover new content and find new ways of communicating it to the larger world. Practitioners too, on their part, have tried in many ways to break boundaries with their audiences and make them integral to their work. Some of the projects showcased here have attempted to build new audiences, enabled wider public access to their work and embraced audiences as active participants in their work.
Works of the following grantees will be showcased:
Panel Discussion: Bassu Khan, Bikram Ghosh, Deepa Rajkumar, Mandeep Singh Raikhy, Neelam Man Singh (Moderator)
Exhibition: Abul Kalam Azad / Performance: Bikram Ghosh
Workshop: Mandeep Singh Raikhy
- INTERROGATING PASTS
The past is at once a legacy to treasure and a burden to bear. It is sometimes obstinate, sedimented and at others, free flowing in the way it shapes our present and future. In different ways, notions of the past have gripped the artist’s mind and informed her practice. The projects showcased here point to the multiple ways in which artists have conversed with the past. While finding inspiration, artists have also challenged, rejected, questioned, critiqued, reinterpreted and departed from the pasts. Engage with this theme through poetry, music, graphic work, film, theatre, photography and dance.
Works of the following grantees will be showcased:
Panel Discussion: Padmini Chettur, Pushpamala N, Sarbajit Sen, Sharanya Ramprakash, Susnato Chowdhury, Jonathan Barlow (Moderator)
Exhibition: Lakshmi Subramanian (CSSSC), Sarbajit Sen
Performance: Abhishek Majumdar, Shruthi Vishwanath
Film Screening: Wanphrang Diengdoh
- IMAGINING FUTURES
The human race today finds itself irrevocably trapped between two conflicting emotions about its future - the anxiety and fear of slowly destroying this planet; the hope and desire that a better world is possible. Artists have always been at the forefront of imagining the diverse possibilities that our futures can bring upon us. The projects showcased under this theme bring together some of the ways in which they envisage, project and frame our imminent destinies. While some of the projects raise questions about our nature of occupying the planet, others explore new ways of experiencing and learning about the arts and its connection to life. Engage with this theme through puppetry, film and theatre.
Works of the following grantees will be showcased:
Panel Discussion: Anurupa Roy, Pallavi Paul, Rajiv Krishnan, Ranjana Pandey, Sahej Rahal, Sanjay Kak (Moderator)
Performance: Kavish Seth / Film Screening: Pallavi Paul, Sahej Rahal
At: Bangalore International Centre, Bangalore.
