Reading by Githa Hariharan at Ranga Shankara

Book Reading by Githa Hariharan – Press Release

Ranga Shankara, in association with Penguin Books India, will play host to a book reading session by author Githa Hariharan on Sun July 26th at 11:00 AM. The session, being held to celebrate the publication of the author’s latest work, “Fugitive Histories”, will begin with an introduction by Lakshmi Krishnamurthy and will be followed by readings from her work by the author and an interaction with the audience.

Fugitive Histories exposes the legacy of prejudice that sometimes covertly, sometimes perceptibly, continues to affect disparate lives in present day India. In prose that is at once elegant, playful and startlingly inventive, Githa Hariharan portrays with remarkable precision the web of human connections that binds as much as it divides.

The entrance for the event, which will be held inside the Ranga Shankara auditorium, is free. For any further details please contact Ranga Shankara on 26493982.

"Alarms and Excursions" at Ranga Shankara on Feb 5th and 6th,2009

Dramanon, the young theatre group of Bangalore, is staging “Alarms and Excursions” on Feb 5th & 6th at Ranga Shankara.

About Alarms and Excursions:

Alarms and Excursions by Michael Frayn, is both farcical and comic. The play comprises of two playlets that share a central theme: a humorous & critical commentary on disconnection between people. The play explores the obtuse humor in our off the hook, disconnected relationships with ourselves and with each other – and the resulting tragic-comedy of such a set up.

The first playlet “Doubles” involves two couples who check into identical hotel rooms next to each other. Their rooms, which are mirror images of each other, are separated by thin walls. Through the play, we slowly discover that the only thing that eventually separates them is not the physical wall between the rooms, but the invisible walls between each other.

The second playlet “Immobiles,” is an exposé of human disconnection in a world without mobile phones. A frustrated couple tries to coordinate a proper meeting place using an answering machine and coin operated phone booths for their foreign friend when he arrives at the airport. Broken bones and broken hearts are the result of this techno faux pas.
