Chinmayam 2018

Chinmayam 2018 is a cultural extravaganza featuring notable celebrity artistes as well as our very own local talents. Our special guest for the evening is none other than Gautham Vasudev Menon, the outstanding South Indian Film director who has given us precious gems in films such as ‘Minnale’, ‘Vaaranam Aayiram', ‘Ennai Arindhal' and so on. His movies have reached out to the people and tugged at their hearts for the emotions and sentiments they evoke, while telling a story simply using familiar situations and characters. It is our honour to have him among us to share his thoughts and experiences.

We are also proud to have the honourable Ustad Fazal Qureshi with us to create extraordinary music as his swift and nimble fingers create magic on the tabla. Together with him, the brilliant Naveen Kumar will mesmerise us with his soothing renditions on the flute. Naveen is no stranger to us as he has played the flute for legends like AR Rahman and also to music from movies such as ‘Roja’, ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’, ‘Taal’ and more. Together, these two accomplished musicians will set the stage on fire with a beautiful ‘Jugalbandhi’. Be prepared to fill your souls with hauntingly melodious songs by Geethiyaa Varman, Sajith Sankar and Sangeeta Madhav as they enchant you with their impressive range of vocals.

There will also be some mesmerising dance performances by the very graceful Maalika Panicker, who inspires many with her creative and precise choreography. The highlight of the night will be a dance drama, titled ‘Ramarasam’ based on the Hindu mythology, ‘Ramayana’. Join our young talents as they take you on a journey through time to retell the tale of Lord Rama and his wife, Sita, as seen through the eyes of the young Lava and Kusha. This will be performed by over fifty local talents, many of whom are children and students.

This drama is a move to initiate greater interest and participation among the younger generation towards the local arts scene.

Flora and Ulysses

Can a little squirrel change the human heart? Join Flora & Ulyses to find out.

After getting sucked up by a Ulysses 2000x vacuum cleaner, an unassuming squirrel is given new life by 10-year old Flora Belle Buckman, a self-proclaimed cynic who is struggling to accept her difficult family situation. She names the squirrel Ulysses and discovers that he has gained superhero powers! No longer an average squirrel, the mighty Ulysses can now understand Flora, fly through the air, and even write poetry... A friendship is born between the unlikely pair, and together they embark on a heart-filled journey full of quirky characters, giant donuts, a killer cat and the ever-expanding universe. This endearing saga about the possibilities of hope, and the promises of a capacious heart, proves that the world is indeed more beautiful when you believe a squirrel can type poetry.

Flora & Ulysses is the phenomenal show based on the Newbery Medal award-winning book by Kate DiCamillo, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Tale of Desperaux, and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
