Every job counts.
Pratikaryam Mahakaryam is Stage Sanchaar's presentation of a well-known fable from the Panchatantra, which is found around the world in different forms. This production utilizes a stylized version of Indian street theater with music arranged from the albums Seasons and Yakshas. Join us in discovering how each of us has something to contribute. AND no matter how small it is, put together, it makes all the difference.
Embrace-a conversation about Change
EMBRACE is a multi-layered concept using art to connect our community. In EMBRACE, we consider CHANGE and the struggle we face personally and as a society when confronted by its necessity. Each of us has a personal and collective sense of tradition, which becomes the foundation for ‘identity’. What happens when we are faced with a new environment? Is it alright to tweak what we accept as essentially constant? If so, how does one incorporate change? And finally, what are we giving up and/or gaining in the process? When faced with a different environment, new experiences or upheaval, we must unravel that which binds us and use it to embrace the moment where tradition meets transformation. Drawing inspiration from art installations by Nirmal Raja and Dara Larson, Stage Sanchaar presents 4 Bharata Natyam dance pieces with an impromptu music and painting piece. We invite the audience to participate by weaving their way through the installations and then joining in a panel discussion to share ideas about change.
The Power of YOU
The Power of YOU is an hour-long production advocating the empowerment of women and girls and includes these pieces: Invocation, Breaking the Cycle, The Letter--Overcoming oppression...at a cost (inspired by Kalki Krishnamurthy's short story 'Kadithamum Kanneerum’), Trigunātītā--A survivor’s journey to peace within and to be celebrated and ‘Suno’ by Indiva--A video. It is inspired by those who survive, resist oppression, help survivors, change policy, enforce rules and create awareness. The performance of this production is meant to serve as a fundraiser for organizations addressing violence against women and promoting the empowerment of women.
