Suryan, Margarita, Krishna...

The excellently amazing and charming voice of Suryan merged with the equally mesmerizing voice of young Italian volunteer Margarita, who has managed to become famous in the community over the past few months.

On the Sunday morning of December 15th, a very special performance by and for the children of Auroville was given at Cripa, Kalabhumi: Awakening of Christmas Light.

To melt the ice there was but one way: perform to the best. And this is exactly what the children did. The audience was charmed by all the talent. Pianists, singers, poets, dancers, acrobats...

Trojan in Auroville
A computer virus? A PC worm?? Not, this time real Trojan walked the soil of Auroville! The 6th grade students of Transition School performed one of the most famous events of the Greek mythology, the Trojan war. Gods, swords, kings, princess and a horse-unicorn is the recipe of the well attended play. The classic Greek tragedy is turned in an modern novel with mobile phones and rock songs. This choice made accessible the roots of the western culture to kids and teenagers. May be not a very classical interpretation but for sure we all had fun. Read more
