The Indian Cancer Society, Delhi Branch and Jyotsna Shourie Dance Company are coming together to host a fundraising event for cancer patients in need. The event, titled “Unmasked: When Ravana Walked the Earth,” will take place on 14 April, 2023 at the Kamani Auditorium in New Delhi.
The event “Unmasked: When Ravana Walked the Earth” is a unique fusion of Bharatanatyam and contemporary dance, comedy, and theatre, mythology and fiction. The show takes us on a journey in Lanka through the eyes of some pivotal characters of the Ramayana. The old world meets the new, as two parallel narratives unravel and a fresh perspective on the nuances of good and evil emerge. The show is produced by Aneesha Grover, a Bharatanatyam dancer, writer, and producer, and written by an eclectic mix of writers from theatre, comedy, and television backgrounds.
The event aims to raise funds for cancer patients who cannot afford medical treatment. All proceeds from the event will go to the Indian Cancer Society, Delhi Branch. The event is open to all, and tickets can be purchased online or at the venue.
Speaking about the event, Jyotsna Shourie said, “As performers, we strive for innovative ideas that widen the frontiers of our classical arts while sustaining their core authenticity. We explore the tributaries that feed the river of tradition, for then our creativity is rejuvenated. Our aim with ‘Unmasked’ is to entertain and reflect on issues, and we are excited to collaborate with the Indian Cancer Society, Delhi Branch to raise funds for cancer patients in need.”
