IAPAR International Theatre Festival 2017 will feature plays
from India as well as other countries. The festival is an effort of curating a theatre festival with a purpose of bringing innovative performances to the city and its diverse communities. Day 10 of the festival will feature two amazing performances called Venunaad and In Transit from India.Venunaad (INDIA)
We have seen, heard and read about the many forms of Krishna - he has been illustrated as The Lord, Lover, the Friend, the
Politician, etc. Krishna had relations with many prominent women of his time - most prominently, Radha, Meera, Draupadi, Yashodha, Kunti, Gandhari, etc. Each of these relationships was deep, layered and unique in its nature. This performance explores the identity of Krishna and the nuances of the relationships he shared with various women of the time. It raises questions and looks for new angles with which one can look at these relationships.In Transit (INDIA)
"So much of the city is our bodies. - Anne Michaels
How do we understand the life of our own bodies? How are we able to re-see movement and the ideas contained in the body? How does one see more deeply into our mundane day to day existential movement? In Transit is a non-verbal dance
-theatre performance that examines the representation of systemic and subjective movement in contemporary cultural looking at bodies in transit. The performance looks at the intensity of the movements & moments we experience on the streets. It senses the physicality in strong and soft tones, a constant searching and uncovering, everything we see around us that we cannot forget and carry within us.
