METAJINGLE: The postman does not wait for the rising tide Reading / Dancing / Juggling / Music/ Visual Art on 8 November, 6.30pm @ Bharat Bhavan.

This multidisciplinary stage performance is centred around a correspondence between two poets and writers. Marc Delouze from France and Meera Nair from Kerala provide live readings of their letters.

The stage scenery is formed from the collective work following French visual artist Patricia Nichols’ interaction with visual artists from Kerala- Robert Lopez, Jayasree B., Aswany Kumar  V. S and Udayakumar  T. R.. The sea is a blank page where a narrative written by two voices emanating from two distant shores comes to life. Imaginary cargoes pass these two ports.

The postman is incarnated by French dancer and juggler François Chat, performing alongside Indian musicians. From one continent to the other, through waves and tides, currents and winds, this figure carries the messages being exchanged. He is the messenger linking these two shores, two cultures, two languages, and two ways of seeing.

The musical element in the show is created by Karnatrix fame John Anthony and Rahul C. R.

This project which is an original creation of Alliance Française de Trivandrum and Les parvis poètiques, will have its premiere with this performance in Trivandrum, before it travels to other parts of India.METAJINGLE: The postman does not wait for the rising tide also marks the commencement of the third edition of Bonjour India, the French celebration in India.

An art exhibition named METAJINGLE will also be displayed at the Art Gallery, Alliance Française de Trivandrum as part of this project. The exhibition will include the original paintings that form the visual component of the performance. Artists Robert Lopez, Jayasree B., Aswany Kumar V. S,  Udayakumar  T. R. and Patricia Nikols will exhibit their works. The exhibition will be held from 7 to 21 November.

Entry is free.
