Blithe Spirit

Menon, Dimpy.  Blithe Spirit. 2017. Bronze Sculpture. Jagriti

Artist’s Note
Blithe Spirit embodies the joy of performance. The sculpture can be viewed from various levels, from above and below, as one enters the foyer. It uses the entire space as its stage. The suspended figure expresses a myriad of emotions and an attitude of owning all that it surveys. The spirit of Jagriti inspired Blithe Spirit.

Dimpy’s ‘Blithe Spirit’

This flowing stillness
Bewitches our hearts,
What can we compare
With Dimpy’s art?

Shy spots of sunshine
Scurry about to hide,
The stars and the moon
Peep in from outside.

There look! He dances
In unreined delight,
Dazzling by day,
Luminous at night

Jagriti gets invited to Bangalore Club for a dramatised reading to commemorate the memory of Jane Austen and what a beautiful house full event it was.

Here's our very own Mr. & Mrs. Bennett, Lizzie and Darcy after our Jane Austen Reading. "A good play never needs updating" - @the_hindu July 21,2017

Our first production of Girish Karnad's first play, Yayati was in 2007. Ten years later Yayati still managed to bring in full houses! 
We are all set now, to travel with it over the next two months - playing at @rangashankara, The Vinod Doshi Theatre Festival Pune and Rani Seethai Hall, Chennai.

Directed both times by @arundhatiraja, here's a look at some production stills taken a decade apart. 
Cast(2007): @aporupacharya Veena Appiah, Mythri Surendra, Sukhita Aiyar, Kartik Kumar and Anjalika Kapur

Cast(2017): @rohnmalhotra, Vivek Vijayakumaran, Divya Jain, @swatide, Vandana Prabhu,  @takeiteasypolicy and Jagdish Raja
