Come be a part of something special!
We're bringing back Yakshagana, a beautiful traditional dance-drama that's all about Karnataka's rich culture. We're super excited to revive this fading art, and we want you to join us for a fun and interactive show at The Studio C9 in Bengaluru on December 10th. It's going to be a night filled with the magic of Yakshagana, where tradition meets interactivity and entertainment.
Date: December 10th
Venue: The Studio C9, Bengaluru
Yakshagana tells ageless tales from Indian epics with its colorful costumes, energizing dance routines, and captivating musical accompaniments!!!
Our artists aim to create a bridge between tradition and modernity by offering a unique experience through their explanation of the performance's detailed elements in English. This guarantees that all audience members may fully appreciate and interact with the rich cultural narratives being presented, irrespective of how much you relate to Yakshagana.
Why Yakshagana Matters:
Yakshagana is not just a performance; it's a cultural treasure trove that risks fading away with time. By bringing it to The Raft, we aim to spark interest among today's generation, fostering an appreciation for the art form's historical significance and artistic brilliance.
As part of our commitment to making this experience engaging for everyone, the artists will interact with the audience, providing insights into the characters, stories, and intricate dance movements. This unique approach ensures that attendees not only witness the performance but also gain a deeper understanding of the cultural nuances embedded in Yakshagana.
Additionally, if you'd like, our audience members have the wonderful opportunity to get full Yakshagana-style makeup applied to their entire faces.
To successfully host this event, we need INR 2 lakh to cover all expenses and bring the dance event to life. Your support can help conduct an exciting event this year and keep the spirit of dance high!
GLIMPSES FROM THE PREVIOUS EVENT:
Hello, I'm Avinash Singh, a seasoned Graphic Designer with over 22 years of experience in the dynamic world of visual arts. Beyond pixels and designs, I've ventured into the realm of cultural revival with a passion for fostering artistic expression.
In February 2023, I founded 'Saptaswara Sounds - Intimate Events,' a venture born out of a desire to create meaningful spaces for music and dance. Since its inception, I've curated and successfully executed 28 events, showcasing a diverse array of talents. My mission goes beyond mere entertainment; I aim to promote and uplift young and emerging artists while celebrating the rich tapestry of local folk music and dance.
One of my key objectives is to revive the traditional music and dance forms that once adorned the cultural landscape of Bangalore. In doing so, I hope to contribute to the preservation and rejuvenation of the artistic heritage that this vibrant city was once renowned for.
In my current endeavor, I am excited to announce a crowdfunding campaign to raise 2 lakhs for a Yakshagana event. This ambitious initiative aims to not only bring back the enchanting rhythms of Yakshagana but also provide a platform for local talent to thrive. Through your support, we can collectively contribute to the revival of this traditional art form and create an immersive cultural experience for the community.
Join me on this artistic journey. Your support is not just a contribution; it's an investment in the cultural legacy we aim to preserve and promote.
