Exhibitions & Events
Pastoralists, from regions across India, have their own ways of speaking about their relationships with land, animals; invoke god, or tell the world about the stories of their origin. Such forms of expressions are often as unique as they are enchanting. We find them in poetry, songs, theatre, story telling.
Both the Living Lightly Delhi and Ahmedabad exhibitions have invited pastoralists to present their stories and rituals through performances which have included the Oggu Katha from Kuruma herders of Telangana, Bhitai (rendition of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai’s poetry), Waee by Sindhi herders, Kabir Bhajan by Rabari herders and much more!
This section brings glimpses of times when the pastoralists captivated audiences of Delhi and Ahmedabad during the Living Lightly exhibitions of 2016 and 2017.
