Enjoy this promenade performance inspired by the climate migration of people from the Sundarbans across India and Bangladesh.
Sundarbans is the world’s largest contiguous mangrove forest supporting approximately 4.37 million people. Due to climate change and rising sea levels, islands and homes are disappearing. And the way of life for local people is under serious threat.
Loss and hope, community and people, landscapes and shelter. All themes explored through the beauty and poignancy of South Asian dance forms and classical Carnatic vocals.
Pravaas invites the audience to follow an evocative experience of migration. You will witness the lyricism, fluidity and symmetry of ancient South Asian dance forms, rooted in rhythm and gestures (mudras) and uplifting song. The performers will move to express the pain, suffering, resourcefulness, spirit and hope within these communities. They will convey real life stories of migration due to climate change. As the landscapes shift and homes are destroyed, people continue to journey and to create.
Join Pravaas to help rebuild dwellings, forge communities, keep moving and discover a shared fluctuating environment. Enjoy the dance and music and connect to these powerful migrant stories.
