The Actresses of the Odin Teatret

Odin Teatret is a theatre company based in Holstebro, Denmark. Founded by Italian theatre director Eugenio Barba in 1964, the first company of actors was a group of young artists who failed to gain admission to the Oslo State Theatre School. On Monday, Julia Varley, a member of Odin’s company of actors, gave a compelling presentation on the actresses of the Odin Teatret’s company. Throughout the hour, Julia spoke to the strength, exploration, and some of the work that she and her fellow actresses have been engaging in for over 20 years.

Nathalie Mentha in Per Edith Piaf

On 13th at CRIPA Nathalie Mentha performes Per Edith Piaf, with the direction and the technical assistance by Pino Di Buduo, from Teatro Potlach in Italy.
This performance is a musical journey in France of the 1930s and 1950s through Edith Piaf’s songs – stories of lives in the underworld of the French gangsters, stories of women in love, stories of passion, of dreams, of memories.
The theme, the soul which ties all the stories together, and maybe even more Edith Piaf’s own soul, seems to be: Whatever happens, don’t ever stop believing in love.

This is a tale which starts in 1939, a crucial historical moment throughout Europe. It is the period of Jaques Prevert’s poetry, Cartier-Bresson’s photography, of Jean Cocteau’s theater tales, of the coming of the Second World War which will destroy so many families, of the songs from Charlie Chaplin’s films, of the images and characters of De Sica’s film Roma Citta’ Aperta, of the French Resistance, of the struggle for life and for love. The performance as a part of Tantidhatri International International Women’s Arts Festival. – –

Voice Polyphoniques – Tantidhatri

On 13th at Cripa the Voice Polyphoniques, a vocal women group made by Brigitte Cirla, Tania Zolty and Marianne Suner, has performed Black Sea Songs in Georgian, English and French. The concert is a tribute to Edisher Garakanidse, singer, ethno-musicologist and founder of the group Mtiebi from Georgia. He taught at the music conservatoire in Tbilisi where he was a colleague of Nato Zumbadze and post graduate tutor to Nana Kalandadze, who worked with Brigitte Cirla and Helen Chadwick on the first edition of this Black Sea concert.

They all joined him on many fieldwork trips to meet singers and record songs in the different regions of Georgia. Edish came regularly to England and France to run workshops and to perform. In 1998 Edisher died in a car accident. The meeting of artists from France, Georgia and England is in homage to his spirit. He used to say : Singing is just an excuse for meeting ourselves. –

Ceramics Exhibition in Pitanga

Priya Sundaravalli from Tamil Nadu is currently having an exhibition in Pitanga. Over 300 ceramic objects, which are all very unique, can be visited until the 24th of March. Her art is quite unusual and the thin shapes of her creations make the items look fragile. Instead of thinking and planning her work, she is trying to let her inspiration flow freely and allows herself to do whatever is coming up. If items crack she repairs them with a Japanese technique: ‘Nothing is a defect, accidents are seen as part of what is supposed to happen.’

Exhibition at Pitanga from the 9th of March until the 24th.
8am – 12.30pm and 2pm-6pm. Priya Sundaravalli has lived in Auroville for 10 years now.

Renewal of Consciousness

Frederick, a Working Committee member, spoke to us on some current issues. His overall view is that this will be a year of many changes, and as such a year of intensive work, outwardly as well as inwardly. The aims of the Working Committee are to create a process in which it will become a facilitating agent, and to be more proactive than reactive as it is now. Appointment of the community’s friendly secretary Bala Baskhar is seen as a positive change. And we all should focus on renewing of our consciousness and do what we are here for.
