Description

BADLANDS: Untold stories from central India (1 hour and 30 minutes of stories, a 15 minute break)

We know the colourful and spiritual India---a land of rivers, festivals, gods, dances and lush green fields. But what about the rest?

Gauri Raje went on a journey to her ancestors' region, and found badlands; both in her father's and mother's lineage. Lands of warriors, dacoits and outcasts, parched ravines and black volcanic mountain ranges, of writers, bards and storytellers. Set in these arid landscapes and following the tradition of each story representing a particular season, her stories will come from outlying sections of society in Western and Central India where there is thirst, but also courage, wit, humour and music!

This piece is mainly in English but also uses Gujarati, Marathi and Urdu to give a resonance to the region within which the stories are set. Savour seasonal South Asian fruit juices and home-made snacks as you listen to the stories for a full seasonal sensory experience!




Her projects include directing 'East of the Sun, West of the Moon' a collection of stories for adults from around the world translated and told in 3 different Indian languages, and 'Badlands', a storytelling of folk stories of the land and rivers of central India and 'Tales of Exile and Sanctuary', stories from around the world exploring themes of exile. Currently, she is working on a performance that combines stories of her ancestors, traditional/ folk tales and tales of the land from Gujarat and Maharashtra.
