About the Programme :
Iti Labanya is a musical presentation showcasing the women of Tagore in today’s world. How would Tagore’s unconventional women protagonists like Labanya, Mrinal, Nandini, Ela and others react to the present day context? Would their struggles, fights and emancipation have changed, or have simply taken new forms?
‘Tagore Beyond Boundaries’ in collaboration with Banglalive.com presents Iti Labanya: a musical soiree showcasing beautiful snippets of Tagoriana through songs, reading, instrumental renditions, choreography, enactment and visual artistry. This is a truly global initiative with performers spanning across India, United States, United Kingdom, and Singapore.
