Event Details

Session 4

6.30 pm to 6.45 pm: “Goddess” – Aditi Bhagwat

Seasoned Kathak exponent and actor, Aditi Bhagwat, sets the stage with a powerful invocation, choreographed by acclaimed dancer, Sanjukta Wagh.


Session 5

6.45 pm to 8.00 pm: “Yellamma and Other Stories”: Wild Goddess of the Margins: Musical Storytelling with Shilpa Mudbi Kothakota & Adithya Kothakota (60 mins), followed by a discussion.

Yellamma is a compelling figure, capable of embracing every polarity—the high and the low, man and woman,and every shade in between.  In a lively session, interspersed with rousing folk music, Shilpa Mudbi Kothakota (filmmaker, theatre practitioner and singer), along with Adithya Kothakota (co-founder of the Urban Folk Project), will explore the myth of this fiery goddess. The blazing narrative of Yellamma, the deity of the devadasis and the jogathis (transgender disciples), is kept alive through folk songs that are over 1,500 years old. In a riveting presentation, the artistes unleash a torrent of questions around patriarchy, purity and power.


Box Office now open.
