Presentation on Kabir

‘Akatha Kahani’, or untellable story, is a presentation on Kabir, where three sisters attempt to showcase this special alchemy between Kabir and his listeners by sharing their individual encounters with Kabir.

One wrote a book for young adults, another sings his songs passionately and yet another expresses Kabir’s impact on her through Bharatanatyam.

‘Akatha Kahani’, the song, story and dance presentation, features Jaya Madhavan, author of ‘Kabir - The Weaver Poet’ book, Bindhumalini, a singer trained in Carnatic and Hindustani music, and Archana, a Bharatanatyam dancer and French translator.

You don’t meet Kabir. He happens to you. Mystic weaver, radical poet, social thinker, synthesiser of religions… we call Kabir many things but he uniformly calls us all “Sadho”, “O! Good ones” and invites us to listen to his truths.

And when you have encountered the 14th century mystic poet in the space of his song, there is no telling where he will take you, what he will show you and what he will inspire you to do. It is rather inexplicable - this alchemy between Kabir and a willing listener, this anachronistic meeting between you and a poet from a very distant past.

Punctuated with personal sharing, excerpts from ‘Kabir - The Weaver Poet’, and abhinaya for select padas, “Akatha Kahani’s” pivot, however, is Kabir’s songs (as sung by Kumar Gandharva), which the three sisters sing together as an impassioned plea to Kabir in order to evoke and approach Kabir the sensitive, sensible and spiritual being present in all of us.

‘Akatha Kahani’ will last 45 minutes.
