Marry Go Round by Sadiq Peerbhoy @ Jagriti Theatre

Friday, March 6th, 2015Jagriti Theatre, Ramagondanahalli Varthur Road, Whitefield

This is a hilarious comedy about arranged marriages, multi-cultural identities and the generation gap. It is set in Hyderabad, but will find relevance anywhere in India. A determined mother using blatant emotional blackmail to inveigle her NRI son into a marriage with the right sort of desi girl; a reluctant groom with a live-in girlfriend following him all the way to India; a bride on the rebound from a disastrous liaison with a married man; skeletons rattling in old family cupboards; an aunt on the vengeance trail ? and we have a heady cocktail of an arranged wedding that morphs into a love marriage with quite the wrongest possible girl?with a little tactical help from long-dead ancestors. Written in a refreshingly original style, Marry Go Round is one quaint combine of today?s merrily irreverent humour and a staid Hyderabadi milieu with its Nawabi hangover from grandiose times long past.

Gasté in India 1905-1910 @ NGMA

Friday, March 6th, 2015National Gallery of Modern Art, 49 Manikyavelu Mansion Palace Road

The exhibition is organized by the Alliance française in collaboration with the National Gallery of Modern Arts in Bangalore. The project is an initiative of the Institut Français in India. A photo exhibition paying tribute to the people and the magic of India at the turn of the twentieth century. Over a century after Georges Gasté’s death in Madurai, the Institut français in India (IFI) offers a new life to the photographic work of this French Orientalist painter. A selection of eight of his pictures was already displayed at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (Delhi) in the frame of Fete de la Photo – a pan-India outdoor photo festival organized in March-April 2014. Following the success of this initiative, we are now presenting a much broader body of work which will be traveling to 8 Indian cities as a touring photographic exhibition. The project « GEORGES GASTÉ IN INDIA : 1905-1910 » comprises of 34 remarkable photographs taken by Georges Gasté during his sojourn in India in the first decade of the twentieth century. A historic value must be added to the aesthetic quality of Gasté’s photos. The artist as an inspired reporter captured the daily Indian life. The religious scenes, celebrations, crowds or markets offer a rare testimony of a country hardly captured at this time. The pictures, both strong and unique are always as close to reality as possible, depicting to us emotional, loneliness and humanitarian aspects. This is certainly why they seem so contemporary. Along with those will be showcased colour reproductions of his paintings and a few of the letters written by the artist. A documentary film on Gasté’s life will also be screened in the gallery.
