Ranan`s performance piece is doubly inspired by the life, music and writings of and on Beethoven, and Vikram Seth`s novel An Equal Music. Two letters form the core of this performance. One written by Julia, the protagonist of An Equal Music, to her fellow musician and lover Michael; the other written by composer Ludwig Van Beethoven to his brothers. Both deal with the pain of inevitable and irretrievable loss as their writers come to terms with their growing deafness - a loss all the more poignant since it involves the one sense central to the world of music that both individuals - one from contemporary fiction and one from European musical history - inhabit. This combination of text, movement, Kathak and Beethoven`s music explores the many individual and collective, personal and epic textures arising out of this deep sense of loss. Beethoven`s music evokes all these and so much more of human experience with unbelievable insight, nuance, power and passion.

Arghya`s Urubhangam is a narrative initiated by Bhasa`s text of Urubhangam but expanding further to Vyasa`s Mahabharata or the Mahabharata that exists as a performance text in our folk performances, to locate how a power centre is formed and how it gets demolished, how the pillars of the power structure get broken like the thighs of Duryodhona. It starts from the reminiscences of the empire after the Bharat war and attempts to trace out how it all happened. It is a six hour long production with four intervals. Arghya`s Urubhangam is a theatre of Mahabharata, depicted through the body of an Indian actor adopting Indian acting methodology, also attempting to traverse the multicultural mythological India in its six hours journey. It is a theatre of physicality, if someone calls it a narrative then it is a physical narrative. The intervals are actually celebrated in an informal space outside the proscenium through folk performances or music to connect the tales of the tale.
