'Shur o dwani'

By Kamalika Guha Thakurta’s Srijon

Srijon presents a bouquet of dances set to Rabindra Sangeet in which there is mention of musical instruments. The banshi, manjira, mardala, damaru and nupur find mention in Gurudev's songs and poetry, sometimes individually and at times adding up to create a universal sound that reflects Tagore's philosophy of life.

Robi’r Rongey – Tagore Through Colours and Moods

By Shahana, Tagore Centre for Indian Music and Culture

A production that explores the association of colours with emotions and the mood it creates, through an innovative blend of Rabindra Sangeet, dance and poetry creating a show that stimulates, provokes and entertains.

Reminiscence and Reflection – with Ragas, Keertan & Folk from Tagore's Songs By Pubali and Angik

Angik's Dr.Sarmishtha Chattopadhyay, an eminent Odissi and Rabindrik dance performer, has come up with the unique concept of performing on the works of Tagore focussing on reminiscences with ragas, keertan, baul and folk. She has jointly worked with Suchandra Dam of Pubali.
