ARTISTS Anurupa Roy
Puppetry is such an exciting and imaginative art form. And Indian mythology is such a treasure-chest of stories. Put the two together, and you're sure to witness something spectacular! Just imagine the Mahabharata being played out in puppetry. The story unfolding, not through a human body but a manipulated puppet's form. The characters are not living actors, and yet they come alive.
Now, what if certain parts of the puppet's body are erased? What of you only saw segments of their form? Would you still see the entire character? Would it make a difference to the story being told?
We are thrilled to invite Anurupa Roy - one of India's most exciting and acclaimed puppeteers and founder of Katkatha Puppet Arts Trust - to Mumbai Local. According to Anurupa, the vocabulary of the puppet is informed by the human body, and so it is also an extension of it. She feels when we watch the inanimate embody a character, it triggers something different in our response vis-a- vis a live actor. And of course, imagination has a lot to do with it! Anurupa has been working on the dismembered presence in puppetry, a style of performance where only a part of the body is shown and yet, the audience feels the entire puppet's and its character's presence.
Sounds fascinating? Get ready to delve deeper into this concept as Anurupa talks about her latest production-the Mahabharata. Both she and her team worked consciously to continue the dismembered presence throughout the performance. In this Mumbai Local, we can look forward to learning some interesting secrets about this style. We will also see the fresh insights and interpretations puppets bring to these well-known characters from the epic. Through delightful videos, images and some live performance, Anurupa will show us just how mesmerising storytelling through puppetry can be. Get ready to meet Shakuni, Gandhari, Yudisthir and the rest in ways you may never even have imagined.


Please note that the charges are by the museum and not us. The entry for the Museum is Rs. 10/-
