Trilingual academician Prof. Chinmoy Guha and theatre practitioner T.Sasitharan will discuss how we can look to the arts for solutions or methods in approaching the pandemic, and how mankind can learn to reconnect and find new ways of collective art-making.
Prof. Guha will be referencing multiple literary works and his work—Bridging East and West: Rabindranath Tagore and Romain Rolland Correspondence 1919–1941, which shares how two Nobel Laureate from different backgrounds and corners of the world share their views. T.Sasitharan will comment on how education has failed to help us understand the ‘other’ and how theatre can create zones of discomfort to meet the ‘other’.
