To support the practice of performance studies with students, we create Annual Summer Dance Theater Productions every year. Our part works are listed here
This fund raising campaign is to support the 10th Annual Summer Dance Theater Production फ्री - DUMB!
Creation is becoming harder and harder every year since the world is tilting more and more towards materialistic aims. Last year was very hard also as the only theater in Gurgaon shut down its operations and left us in lurch! To raise funds to continue being creative, we reached out to community for help. BEaPUMPKIN! Its great! was a result of crowdfunding.
As time is presenting us with adversity, we use it as opportunity and continue wading against all odds to keep creating. In this process of struggle we found the idea for this years production as well! Its about freedom!
Freedom, a word on everyone’s mind these days but what is it we want freedom from? “Stop suffering your freedom” is the starting point of this inquiry. The production is about realizing that one actually needs freedom from one’s own self, freedom from mindlessness in daily living and hence freedom from the “dumb”! Herd mentality, addiction to mobile phones and hence “restless-bed syndrome”, moral policing, being in toxic relationships even though we can make a choice to leave, losing our own identity and freedom to speak in all this madness, are few ideas we explored with dance and physical theater.
Creativity, getting back to flow energy and un-conditionality of joy, irrespective of what there is, was the answer we have found.
Kids, adults, dancers, actors, musicians, amateurs and professionals, a cast and crew of about 45 members will share the joy of researching life using arts as a tool with you all.
But we need your bit to this much needed energy of फ्री - DUMB! The funds raised from this will be used for rentals, equipment hiring, show videography and photography, properties we need, production costs and creative fee for our fabulous loving collaborators who make the students shine in their explorations of self.
Do contribute generously and share widely. No amount is less and its extremely valuable for us to keep arts alive! We will thank you all (your name) on our social media network (insta and FB), print your name for display on the day of the show and send you lots of love, light and gratitude in helping the most important cause of these times!
We look forward to having you with us in this dance of life and making arts practice possible in this materialistic world by being फ्री - DUMB!
