Genius Classik Stuff

It comes as no surprise that the Visitor Centre was packed last night. Why? The Genius Brothers and their Academic show "Classik Stuff", of course, and the fact that not many  would dare to miss it. Genius Brothers have, already for years, through the use of metaphorical language and humour, served up some truths. At times unmerciful, they hardly skip any area concerning our lives in Auroville, in order to expose some of the problems that bother most of us, yet providing the frame of humor, we are given the option to shift focus to a lighter point... as we go on searching for meaning in this crazy town Read more

The completion of Trust, the first song of an album in progress by Taranti and Ruben, inspired us to interview Taranti.

She also speaks of the overall aim of bringing meaningful lyrics to the dance floor, through the addition of beats by Ruben. After an intense time singing mainly lullabies, Taranti and Ruben are both excited to be experimenting with music again. Listen to the whole song at the end of the interview. Read more

The Universal Mother
Sri Aurobidno tells us that Mother's prayers in Her book "Prayers and Meditations" are mostly written in an identification with the earth-consciousness.

These prayers are written in 1914. Half of century later, in Her Agenda, Mother tells of enfolding the earth and seeing a changed earth with a glorious inner light.

Bruna Gusberti at the Tandtidhatri festival presented at Sri Aurobindo Audittorium, Bharat Nivas in Pavilion of Indian Culture in International Zone act of a woman who reflects on whether to remain closed within her feelings, dreams and sorrows, or not, so as to feel alive.

Tantidhatri - Umbral
"Umbral" or Threshold was offered to the audience by Cristina Castrillo at the stage of Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas, at Pavilion of Indian Culture in International Zone. Minimalistic approach of mono play simply tells the story of actress's life, or better glimpses of it, the way she perceived it, sensed it rather than that really was. Without doubt her trace in theater is huge as she dedicated all her efforts to the research of elements which are basic for an actor, who is always at the heart of the inventive process. Read more
