ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

15th Jan to 20th Jan, 2019

Tantidhatri is India’s first International Women’s Performing Arts Festival. Its First Edition took place in Pondicherry in 2012 and the Second, in Bangalore in 2016. This third edition, will take place in Kolkata from 15th till 20th of January 2019. Tantidhatri aims at being a space of engagement for artists, thinkers and groups that are committed to women’s work in the field of performing arts.

The festival will donate its surplus amount for education of girl children in India. Although physically it is a five day event filled with performances, critiques, talks and interactions, the spirit of the Tantidhatri is universal and not bound by time or space. This year the theme is ‘Energy’ and through the festival, we will be channelizing all our efforts towards the positive flow of energy in all things physical and meta physical.

Daughter: An Intensive workshop

Direction: Jill Greenhalgh
Music: Meg Ella.

A workshop with a performance outcome based on intimate and reflective personal biographies of Mother and Daughter relationships

The inspiration—Daughter was born of the desire to stage intimacy and the complex dyad of the mother/daughter relationship. The project continues an investigation by Jill Greenhalgh into presenting the authentic voices and embodied knowledges intrinsic to women’s experience. Greenhalgh has refined a creative process and presentation structure that works with local women and allows each manifestation of Daughter its distinct cultural and political inflections.

The workshop will run for one week, with participants working five hours a day. Employing both performers and non-performers, the selection process is designed to recruit women of diverse ages, cultural backgrounds and experience, focusing on the strength of their story and their desire to participate. Participants work in a group, but also privately for one hour per day with a partner: whenever possible and appropriate, this will be their daughter or mother. The women explore personal stories and experiences that emerge from the reflections upon being a daughter, or having daughters. At the end of the working period, witnesses are invited to share one on one intimate yet public encounters with the actresses over one, or two, performances.

Ave Maria | Denmark

Text and Director: Eugenio Barba
Actress: Julia Varley

Death is feeling lonely. A ceremony for the actress María Cánepa

Three hundred steps in a few moments. Stone skin above my head. The dead and the transparent flies what are they? And what do I matter? Maybe death doesn’t take everything away.

These verses by the Italian poet Antonio Verri sum up the performance. The British actress Julia Varley evokes her meeting and friendship with the Chilean actress María Cánepa. Death itself celebrates the creative fantasy and dedication of María, who was able to leave a trace after her departure.

No doctor for the dead | Norway

Text: Georg Johannesen
Actor: Geddy Aniksdal
Musician: Anette Röde Hagnell
Director: Tor Arne Ursin

No doctor for the Dead – an intimate performance based on the texts of the Norwegian poet Georg Johannesen featuring actor Geddy Aniksdal and musician Anette Röde Hagnell. The performance highlights Georg Johannesen’s poetic texts and enhancing them with music and choreography, in a bold and expressive style. These are poems with a particular sensitivity to political and historical and social questions relating to war, peace, violence, destruction and death. They often deal with themes that are considered un-poetic; distance, detachment, and the absence of emotion.

Longing for a rose | France

Singers: Brigitte Cirla and Eléonore Bovon.

As the image of the destiny of a rose, the new show of the singers Eléonore Bovon and Brigitte Cirla delicately delves a bouquet of love songs, between traditional musics (Georgia, Bulgaria, Italy …), French songs ( Françoise Hardy, Edith Piaf, Colette Renard …), and some contemporaries.

Enhanced by the colors of the violin and the Indian harmonium, from one language to another, the desire of a rose is rooted in the vocal techniques of the world’s songs, while relying on the original arrangements of Eléonore Bovon. Each piece resonates with its particular virtuosity, to fit into a set of great musical coherence.In this journey punctuated by poetry, the desire is intense, fickle or mischievous, traveling the world without fixing. The rose, from turn to turn, juvenile, languid, modest, solar, is not so easy to pick.

Cassandra | Italy

Dancer: Martistella Martella
Music: Antonio Infantino, Gabriele Panico, Cinzia Marzo
Text excerpt from ‘l mal dè fiori poem by Carmelo Bene

CASSANDRA, a dance solo that takes inspiration from the myth of Cassandra, from Pizzica – Italian traditional dance – and the phenomenon of Tarantism, brings together tradition and mythology. The rite of Tarantism symbolize the harshness of the women condition in southern Italy. Peasant women were working in tobacco @ields, under conditions of exploitation and slavery and, to overcome fatigue and sleepiness, they were dancing Pizzica Pizzica, a traditional dance from Salento. A symbolic bite of a spider, taranta, was injecting the venom making a women descend into madness. From that moment on, the possessed women would be called pizzicata. The only cure to expel the venom, to take away the pain and to cast out the evil, was to dance till exhaustion to the sound of tambourines.

Seeds of memory | Argentina

Director: Julia Varley
Actress: Anna Woolf

The performance, is about absence: the absence of a father, the absence of a body to bury and the absence of 30.000 missing people in Argentina, during the last military dictatorship. But absence generates its opposite: resistance, presence and identity. Absence, is the starting point to build a performance that contains both, a personal message and political discourse.

Although no words will ever be enough to compensate the horror and suffering which have touched many generations of argentines, the autobiographical words of a child and the real pain caused by the recent lost of her father become the dramaturgical solution which allowed to tell the story of a La

Seducere | Spain

Seducere, The sacred power of perfurme
Dance Theater by Mónica de la Fuente

Based on texts by Marguerite Yourcenar Maria Magdalena or the salvation, Telugu courtesan songs and poems by contemporary Spanish poets Aurora Luque and Nuria Barrios.

And the disciples reproached: Why is she doing it?? Wasting so much money…? She could have giving it to the poor.. Why is He accepting it?? If He knew “who” the person is touching him!!…Why… why… why? Even you, seated in front of me right now, in this stage, in your head… you ask yourself or ask me… why am I doing it..? How many times… in so many cultures is she asked “why” is she doing it”??

This space is the response, as a creative act… a response to the others judgments, questions… Generous act… Intimate… Intuitive… Instead of the words she uses her body language, her hands, her mouth, her hair… to express her infinitive love… to melt…

Two Madonnas | India – Mexico

Concept & Performance: Rakini Devi and Violeta Luna
Original Music: David Molina
Costumes and Objects: Rakini Davi and Violeta Luna

Two Madonnas: Mutual syncretic iconographies.

The performance of Two Madonnas investigates sacred feminine iconography, deepening the inherent tension that exists between the notions of the profane and the sacred, with special attention to the juxtaposition of Mexican Catholic iconography, such as the Virgin of Guadalupe, and Indian iconography, such as the Hindu goddess Kali.

Rakini Devi and Violeta Luna engage the notion of the body as human shrine in a cross-cultural work that integrates complex and contrasting aspects of female religious iconography. In this continually evolving work,  Indian and Mexican cultures enter into a dialogue and resonate in a vibrant space.
