A two day Lavani residency programme with Team Sangeet Bari

In a first, The Drama School, Mumbai and Geetanjali Kulkarni’s unique initiative Tarapa – a cultural initiative by QUEST, join hands with Sangeet Bari to bring you a two day residency in Lavani.

Lavani’s essence is live music & singing, direct dialogue with audience & ribald moves. Today, this complicated, nuanced art form has been reduced to an ‘item number’. This residency aims to introduce people to the forms of Lavani, the classical dance skills it employs and showcase how a Lavani performance comes together.
