Intergenerational conversations are not only important to the people engaged in them, but they are also a wonderful way to see the world in dynamic motion. What happens when your past is juxtaposed with my present? What opens up when you see someone whose work you admire going through the same efforts you went through, but in an entirely different time and context?
What is catalyzed when the distilled knowledge of experience engages with courageous budding creativity? We are absolutely delighted to bring to you, for the first time a Mumbai local, an intergenerational conversation between theatre artists Ratna Pathak Shah, Puja Sarup and Sheena Khalid of Patchworks Ensemble, driven by their deep interest in each others' work. Ratna has loved the young Patchworks' efforts in theatre, especially. She has questions for them, and anxieties as well.PujaandSheena, in turn, is curious about Ratna's experience in theatre, especially when she was starting out like them. They all have questions. And comments. And will be quite candid in speaking them out.
We welcome you to an open, honest and freewheeling adda between these three wonderful artists. Come hear what they have to say about creative intent and process, about their disparate and overlapping experiences of building theatre companies, about their engagement with larger questions (creative, social, philosophical, ideological) that drive their ongoing theatre journey.
Do join us on Friday. Preferably at the venue, but if that is impossible, we will be airing the session live on our Facebook page for you.
This session is curated by Sameera Iyengar.
RSVP for this session begins on Monday, 11th February 2019.
