Exhibition on Kantha Embroidery

The Kantha is a special and beautiful art form developed mainly by the women of Bengal with great passion and love. The Kanthas are infact quilts prepared by layers of old cotton sarees joined together by darn stitches. The threads are drawn across the layers so close to one another that the entire field appears to be rippled. Once the field is prepared the coloured threads are taken out from the borders of the sarees for embroidering the field. The designs of embroidery are symbolic in character and have a close affinity to the alpana. The central design is usually a lotus with variable number of petals interspersed with diverse patterns. The most recurrent designs are tree of life, animals, birds, fish, mythological figures, boats, chariots kalkas etc. which are conventional and freely balanced.

Thang-Ta - Martial Art of Manipur THANG-TA (IGNCA’S INTANGIBLE HERITAGE SERIES) by Shri Aribam Syam Sharma, Duration: 25 minutes 24 seconds

Manipuri martial art is called Thang-Ta (sword and spear). It is dedicated to fighting skill and worship. The Meitei creation of Thang-Ta goes back to antiquity. Ashiba was asked to create the Universe by his father Atngkok Shitaba. The movement and pattern of creation, ritualistically known as Thengou, was revealed in human movement patterns of Thang-Ta. Today Thang-Ta has passed into oblivion, and survives in isolation. The film traces elements of this art against the blend of martial and spiritual elements in the psyche of the Manipuri people.

Film Circle screening of “Ustad Asad Ali Khan- A Portrait”

Director : Renuka George Duration : 70 minutes followed by Question and Answer session with Director.

This is a documentary film on Asad Ali Khan Khan (1937-2011), the eminent instrumentalist of Jaipur Beenkar gharana. Asad Ali was privileged to have a great family heritage, which boasted of legendary instrumentalists like Rajab Ali Khan, Musharraf Khan and Sadiq Ali Khan. He was one of the very few musicians to practice rudravina, an instrument now almost extinct.

The documentary takes us from Rampur, where his father was a court musician, to New Delhi where he lived until his death in June 2011. He shares with us the complexities of practicing this rare instrument. We get a glimpse of what life must have been like in the court days, and how the artistes of that generation dedicated themselves to their art. The artist plays at home for us, sharing his music generously and intimately.

It brings together these traditions not as museum pieces but as living forms of story-telling where the object is given life and projects its creator’s ideas and essence. It was first showcased in the IGNCA in 2010. In Spain, the exhibition will be held in two venues- Madrid and Tolosa.

The inaugural at CDN was attended by Mr. Miguel Ángel Recio, Director General of INAEM, Mr. Ernesto Caballero, Director of CDN, Ms. Elena Basagoitia, President of Centro de Iniciativas De Tolosa (CIT), and Ms. Idoya Otegui, Director of Tolosa Puppets International Center (TOPIC). The Indian Ambassador to Spain Shri. Vikram Misri and Jt Secretary of IGNCA, Ms. Veena Joshi were also present at the inauguration.

IGNCA will next be taking the exhibition to the Tolosa Puppets International Center (TOPIC) and Centro de Iniciativas De Tolosa (CIT) where it will be on from 18th October 2014 till March 2015.

Akhyan has been curated by Prof. Molly Kaushal of Janapada Sampada division, IGNCA. Shri. Dadi Pudumjee is the associate curator. The designer of the exhibition is Mr. Neeraj Sahai.

FILM SCREENING > Pavakathakali (Glove Puppets of Kerala) Duration – 56 min.

Shri. G. Venu shall be present to take questions from the audience.
Origin of Pavakathakali or Puppet Kathakali is attributed to the Andippandaram community,an itinerant group who travelled from Andhra Pradesh and settled in Kerala. They performed puppetry as they moved from village to village for their livelihood. When Kathakali became popular in the eighteenth century, they began to dress up their puppets in Kathakali costumes and make up and also adapted attakatha, the text of Kathakali, creating a new form of puppetry called Pavakathakali. This 56 minute long presentation traces the history; the challenges the art form has faced in various phases of its existence and the present day efforts to rejuvenate it in the rustic setting in Kerala.

Pavakathakali Performance by Natana Kairali group: Kalyana Sougandhikam and Duryodhana Vadham performances

Pavakathakali, glove puppet play, came into vogue and popularity in Kerala two centuries ago through the influence of the famous classical dance theatre, Kathakali. By incorporating some Kathakali techniques and modelling puppets based on their characters, the Pavakathakali art-form emerged. The word Pava means “puppet” and Kathakali means “story play”. The glove puppet theatre form is of great importance because of its ability to present Kathakali, our classical dance-drama, through puppetry.These performances before children made them quite familiar with the stories of two major Hindu scriptures, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. And also the performance engendered in the minds of children, certain values which are very important in life.
