BLOWING IN THE WIND - A MUSICAL DEMONSTRATION
Date: Saturday, November 25
Time: 7 PM - 8:30 PM
Venue: EMK Center, Midas Center Building (9th Floor) House-5, Road-16, Dhanmondi
Air. Wind. Atmosphere. We, the mortal beings, live this life, this very moment, in an envelope of air. A quiet disruption in this regular flow would have stopped us that very second. This ever so curious life flies high and higher for the unread, unseen, not felt. Rahul Ananda, theatre artist, musician, instrument maker and visual artist is set to capture a fragment of this curiosity. Most of his works are based on socio-cultural issues and interpretation, especially with an appreciation of nature and human relationships. Ananda is a founder member and current associate creative director, writer, director and actor of 'Prachyanat', a well-known theatre company of Bangladesh. Music being his passion, he has formed a band 'Joler Gaan' which is warmly received and appreciated in Bangladesh.
Tickets will be available at EMK Center before the event at Tk 100. (Free for #EMKCenter and #AmericanCenter Members upon showing ID card).
