Inbetween Worlds: Story-telling Performance
We think of stories as living things that breathe and grow with each retelling. ‘Inbetween Worlds’ is a story-telling performance for children and grown-ups alike, which re-imagines fictions and fables we inherited from the works of Abanindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore and Sunayani Devi. Conducted by ThinkArts, the event is part of the experience of ‘An Inheritance of Imaginations,’ an online exhibition by Victoria Memorial Hall, Kolkata, and DAG Museum.
Join us for an evening of fables based on these artworks, re-imagined and performed by story-tellers, Nisha Abdulla, Santanil Ganguly and Arna Seal. The performances are integrated with responses of children, from ages 8 to 12, to these great artists from our previous workshop, ‘Reading Between the Brushstrokes,’ which offers us a wonderful insight into how the stories carry new meanings for different readerships.
Our story-tellers will join us at the end to share their journeys with these images, to reflect on what these stories mean to us and the imaginative legacies they leave behind.
This event is bilingual (English and Bengali).
