Screening of the film Circus

Theatre actors and circus artists come together to make this brilliant production under the directorial gaze of Abhilash Pillai. Twenty-six students from the National School of Drama, combine with nineteen artistes from Grand Circus along with an elephant and a horse appear on stage, the circus ring, for the maiden show of ‘Clowns and Clouds’, based on tales from the Panchatantra, from Kalidas’ Meghadoot, and a Chinese fable Shwa-Shwa. Joker acts in between are supported by innovative masks, costumes, specially created music and dance. For the actor/student it was a challenge to perform in front of an audience of three thousand odd people circled from all sides. For the circus performer the challenge was to stick to a story. For the rest of us, the audience, a visual never seen before. IGNCA in collaboration with National School of Drama had hosted three days of Circus at IGNCA in 2013. The entire performance was documented by NSD. A film based on this documentation has now been made by well known film maker Shri Sanjay Mahirshi.
Shri Mahirshi will be available for Q & A session.

Film screening of Buddhism - A living Religion in the North east of India

Director: Bappa Ray
Duration: 60 mts

From the 7th century, Buddhism underwent radical changes, and new forms appeared which were called Mahayana and Vajrayana or Tantra. The discipline combines yoga practice with highly complex ritualism, mixed with magic, and involves the worship of a large number of divinities, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Mahayana Buddhism, both as a religion and a way of life has influenced the outlook of diverse communities in the Himalayan region. From Ladakh and Himachal in the west to Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim in the east, in small villages scattered throughout the areas bordering Tibet, are communities who have adopted the Buddhist way of life. The film looks at the influence of Buddhism – a Living Religion, on the socio-cultural heritage, dances, festivals, arts and craft of Buddhist communities in the North Eastern region of India, especially Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim.

Lecture Demonstration and Performance of Perini - Dance

IGNCA SRC in association with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, is organizing a Lecture Demonstration and Performance of Perini – Dance form of Andhra Pradesh byShri. Kalakrishan and accompanist

Perini is a form of Indian dance which was lost in timeline and which was recreated and re-established in 20th century by Padmasri Dr. Nataraja Ramakrishna. Perini Shiva Tandavam is the stimulator to activate the dormant dynamism in human. Perini is the slang form of the word ‘prerana’ which means stimulation. It is said to be the only form of scientifically composed male warrior dance and a form of traditional Indian dance with tala, gati, yati vinyasa. While performing and viewing this dance we experience a state where the panchabhutas are slowly mingling into the Shiva Tattva.The Perini dancer is possessed with an energy and that can be proved incessantly where the sound ‘tam’ from the mridangam resembles the ‘aum’. To prove this Dr. Nataraja Ramakrishna used Dhrupada Mridanga Baani. The sound produced in the solar plexus region extends to rest of the body and stimulates them.To perform this art it requires the perfect co-ordination of mind, body and soul. It is a kind of ritual also where one can offer prayers to Lord Shiva and it is said to activate the kundalini. Dr. Sudha Murthy, Chairperson of the Infosys Foundation inaugurated the performance and on the spot made a generous donation to all the artists and urged them to keep this rare tradition alive.

International Conference on MARC Aurel Stein with special reference to South and Central Asian Legacy: Recent Discoveries and Research

This Conference aims to focus on the life and legacy of Aurel Stein who like, Xuanzang- the traveller and scholar travelled through the inhospitable Silk Road, encircling the Taklamakan Desert, and unearthed a great civilization which remained hidden in the sand dunes for centuries.

Stein was the first among Europeans to understand the ethos of Kashmir’s culture. This great savant explored the inner essence and beauty of Sanskrit literature especially the Rajatarangini of Kalhana. Stein proved his utmost dedication and devotion by editing and translating Kalhana’s chronicle and made his debut as a historical topographer.

Stein was not the first westerner to reach Dunhuang, China but he was the first to reach the sealed library (library 17 of Dunhuang Caves, Gansu, NW of China) and to acquire a large part of its contents from this library.

Stein was a meticulous record-keeper and took notebooks and field diaries to record all aspects of his expeditions. And his record keeping has been invaluable for the study of the sites he explored and the excavated artefacts.

This Conference will provide opportunity for scholars and students to know about this great personality who devoted his life in understanding the great civilization i.e. India, Central Asia and China.
