This March Adishakti will be presenting a retrospective of their work through five different performances :
Impressions of Bhima
All five plays are explorations or interpretations of episodes and characters from either the Ramayana or the Mahabharata. Details about the plays will be posted in March.

 The last two years have been hard on everyone, especially on artists all over the world. This is why an appeal to your generous collaboration to make this event happen, so that these versatile Physical Theater artists have a chance to share with us with their incredible talents and creativity while taking us close to their sources of inspiration – the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. 

The expenses for hosting the 5 days  festival. It comes to a total of Rs. 1.12,000, (about Rs. 22.400 per show).

– meals and refreshments for 8 Adishakti and 4 Auditorium members and volunteers
– publicity and printing of festival leaflets
– Auditorium contribution towards technical rehearsals and shows

Since the event is based on Indian themes and taking place at the Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas might be able to cover the expenses to a small measure, and has also agreed to undertake the accounting for the festival.
