Auroville is dancing
Throughout its thirty-plus years of existence,
Auroville has seen, organised and enjoyed quite a number of artistic events
and other creative happenings which were generally relished by (almost)
all. We think for instance of the full moon dances and performances in
Forecomers canyons in the early seventies, the innumerable impromptu gatherings
and celebrations around one or more of our artists who
Waiting for the breakthrough..
while it is rumoured that, these days, most of our artists have succumbed
to writing project proposals instead of poems, or are designing company
logos and websites instead of sculpting their dreams, Auroville's cultural
life merrily moves on, ambling onwards, perhaps waiting for the great
and unexpected breakthrough into the 'new' to mature.., somewhere.., on
levels within, responding to larger world levels within and around us.
With the help of some friends..
And of course, Auroville basically being a platform of creation, it is regularly attracting interested artists from abroad and elsewhere in India who usually stay with us for some time, absorbing Auroville's energy and getting inspired by what's trying to be done here.
It is but natural that these friends respond
to the community through their talent for expression, generously sharing
and showing their touch on life, re-animating and kindling the community's
own artistic resources, and eventually leaving Auroville behind, - smiling
and a bit richer.
Via these pages we hope to share with you some
of these co-creative exchanges.
