Aparna Jaishankar, Vikram Sridhar
Join us as storytellers Aparna Jaishankar and Vikram Sridhar take us on a mythical and magical journey, highlighting stories from various versions of the Ramayana: from well known texts to lesser known folk legends. Playing off each other, they will present complimentary, parallel and contested narratives through prose, poetry and dialogue in this unique performance. Looking closely at a few select folios from the exhibition, they explore diverse themes, particularly ecology, an aspect often overlooked in the Ramayana.
This event has been conceptualised as part of the exhibition, Book of Gold: The Kanchanachitra Ramayana of Banaras curated by Kavita Singh and Parul Singh. The exhibition displays nearly 80 folios from an extraordinary illustrated manuscript of the Ramcharitmanas- bringing them together in the public eye for the first time.
Bookings are closed for this event.
