International Women’s Day 2017

Auroville women celebrate International Women’s Day by hosting traditional music, dance and ‘kolam’ (chalk art) competitions at Swachu Building at Bharat Nivas on 18 March 2017.

The United Nations theme for International Women’s Day 2017, focuses on “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”. While the women in cities were occupied in either organizing or participating in various conferences and meetings, Women at Auroville have celebrated the day by promoting the local culture in three forms viz., music, dance, art by spreading the theme of gender equality and women civic participation in the society.

Grace, Usha and Mathi from Auroville have taken a lead role in organizing various cultural activities which includes music and dance competitions and also performances.

Bregette (from Hollande) has been at Auroville and serving at Matrimandir for five years now and in talking to the Auroville Radio she expressed her excitement of being part of this community in rendering various services mainly to the ‘art and culture’.

Mayawati, from La Farm has been the instructor for the ‘kolam’ art competition. Many young girls, students and women participated and filled the floor of the building with amusing and colorful art.

Chloe's performance at LFA

Chloe performed an interesting piece of music out of old tapes and systems. Her performance was intriguing as she created music through waste. The performance was a potpourri of jazz music, conversations and other genres of music.

Djelan Duo

Djelan on midi-guitar, accompained by Suresh on drums, created an infectious beat which inspired people to dance and lose themselves in the music.
The various effects connected with the midi-guitar of Djelan enabled him to replicate the sounds of trombone, sax, and even flute, giving the feel of a full band playing.
The singer guitarist songwriter changed styles from soothing Bossa Nova to more spicy latino beats, and ended with Indian and Arabic flavours.

Warning! Do Not Listen!!

Set in the imaginary City of Neotopia, the play tells a story of a government frustrated by their city’s lack of growth. In an attempt to identify the main obstacles to the city’s progress, a group of politicians invite in a team of foreign consultants to identify the problem.

After an exhaustive study, the consultants conclude that the main obstacle to the city’s growth is the citizens, recommending the introduction of a new kind of citizen – Citizen One. Free from the inconvenience of emotion and opinion, Citizen One promises to get things moving again, but things do not go as planned.
