Butoh meets Contemporary - An experimental Performance

Butoh is a young art form from Japan and was founded by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno after the 2nd world war. With their progressive and revolting performances the artists initiated a very aesthetical way of a protest. The translation of the word Butoh is „ Dance of Darkness" The roots of Butoh are also found in Expressive dance as Mary Wigman an Rudolph van Laban developed end of the 20ths. Since the 90's Butoh finds it's way all over the world and has developed in many different directions an can be seen as an Performance Art as well as an practice.

Butoh aesthetics are much wider and its practice is more than just a new choreographic and visual trend, discovered and developed by the Japanese modern artists.

Ramanaya at Ranga Shankara

Sandbox Collective presents

9 February | Ranga Shankara | 7:30PM
10 February | Ranga Shankara | 3:30PM & 7:30PM

Ramanaya is an attempt to explore the fundamental Indian myth, the Ramayana, but to do so with a playful wink. The performance finds an entry into the revered epic through a central sketched model, made of materials recycled from junk and debris. That landscape, a kind of mind map, will be used as a playground—a place to discuss the infinitive scenarios that unfold in the Ramayana.

Two storytellers find an entry into this map, and get carried away by the force of what unfolds.
Slowly the map expands, grows more complex,taking the two storytellers deeper into the stream of mythology. As their journey takes them into the stream, they find new perspectives in its surreal world, and the epic reveals itself to them in new and unexpected ways. The spectator is invited to join the performers on their journey, and discover this world with them. And perhaps even find their own answers to the questions they are confronted with.

Directed/Choreographed by: Felix Mathias Ott
Performed by: Puja Sarup, Vinod Ravindran
Supported by: The International Co-production Fund of the Goethe-Institut (Goethe-Institut)

Lavni Workshop by Shakuntalabai Nagarkar

Lavani is a graceful and powerful art form of Maharashtra. Like many other regional arts, it has undergone a multiple changes over years. Yet, it has retained its essence which is direct connection with the audience and unabashed expression of sensuality. 

Lavani has a vast repertoire which covers a broader range of performance styles based on their rhythm, rasa, and themes. However, films invariably used lavani only in their 'item number' sequences. Most of us have therefore seen lavani, only as a titillating dance form. The beauty and nuanced artistry of traditional lavani has not reached us.

We propose to give an insight into this art form through our workshop. Participants get to learn it under the guidance of Shakuntalabai Nagarkar, a veteran lavani artist. They also get an opportunity to spend time and chat with her and get a glimpse into the world of Sangeet Bari.
