“He wept for living. And seeing the day they had to leave, he wept for himself. For never again would he have a family. A home. And someone to love him as much as they did. He wept because god had forsaken him. And never again would he be that same little boy.”
Apsaras Arts and Wild Rice take storytelling to new heights with Agathi, which movingly examines the lives and plights of refugees through a unique fusion of theatre, poetry and the classical Indian dance of Bharatanatyam.
In this thrilling, inventive production, the refugee takes centre stag...
“Agathi was not just a dance-theatre work, it was also a social commentary on current affairs across the world. It threw the spotlight on the circumstances that make people flee their homes, natural calamities and politically-motivated displacements, and brought awareness of the injustice of it all.” - Friday Arts Review, The Hindu, Chennai, India
“In a path-breaking production, Agathi attempts successfully to dissect the psyche of a refugee who loses his livelihood, people, nation and ultimately himself to the machinations of man and nature. Fantastic performance by the seven dancers, very meaningful, yet an enjoyable ride!” - FOCUS Magazine, London, UK
“It was a refreshing and a much-needed welcome relief that Apsaras Arts has dared to take Bharatanatyam to talk about an issue that keeps nudging at us all at some corner of our nice and cosy living – the crisis of a refugee that keeps hogging the front pages of our newspapers and is also increasingly becoming a deciding factor in the politics and policies of many a country around the world.” - Life and Times, Chennai, India
