Sunaparanta Goa Centre for the Arts invites you to Quest for Reality: a dance performance by Impana Kulkarni and Prerna Palekar on 11 December 2019 at 7 pm. Conceptualised and directed by Arundhati Chattopadhyaya, this dance recital is inspired by the work of Shantibai (one of the artists at our ongoing show `Sculpsit: Between Thought and Action’) known for her Maria Khamba works which narrate stories of women from the Bastar region of Chhatisgarh. These sculptures are carved into wood found in the region of Bastar. Quest for Reality is a performance which employs Indian classical dance techniques accompanied by live music and tells the story of the plight of Talamai who suddenly goes missing. Presented against the backdrop of our ongoing Sculpsit exhibition, the audience is invited to join us in the search for the missing girl. This concert is open to all and is free of charge.
