Event Details
Fire and Ash ; a thematic multi-genre
production by JustUs Repertory, conceived, and directed by Nataka
Choodamani Dr. Gowri Ramnarayan
in Dreadlocks: The play Fire and Ash explores the modern symbolism and
relevance of Shiva from a 21st century perspective, twisting modern
issues and ancient mythology into a knot that’s as tight as the god’s
famous dreadlocks.

Featuring Dr. Gowri Ramnarayan, Anjana Anand and Savita Narasimhan.

Fire and Ash transforms an ancient myth into a contemporary metaphor.
Blending dance (Bharatanatyam), Indian classical and folk music, theatre
and poetry, this performance celebrates Siva as the image of primordial
creativity and cosmic energy. Featuring leading dancer Anjana Anand,
narration by Dr.Gowri Ramnarayan accompanied by Savita Narasimhan on the
vocals. Six paintings by Savita Narasimhan, commissioned for this work
are displayed on the stage sequentially, to highlight the different
segments. Storytelling in English knits and vivifies the performance. Smile Smile
Good work.... Thank you.
