The Royal Opera House, Mumbai, in collaboration with British Council and Avid Learning proudly present "Antardrishti" - Inner Vision, a music, dance and audio-visual extravaganza produced by the London-based organisation, the Baluji Music Foundation.

Led by multi-instrumentalist Baluji Shrivastav OBE, who is visually impaired, the performance will feature Inner Vision Orchestra which is the UK's only blind orchestra. Its aim is to promote blind and visually impaired musicians to address the imbalance of their absence in most of the music industry in the UK. It also aims to give confidence to blind and visually impaired musicians through the experience of workshops and performances.

The programme will feature digital artists Addictive TV who create music you can 'see' as well as professional visually impaired musicians from across India including tabla/ vocals Raju Maurya, Indian flute Perumal Varudaraj, Indian violin Chiman Lal, vocalist Sayani Palit and classical Indian dancers from Delhi's Arunima Kumar Dance Company.

Inspired by the 11th Chapter of The Bhagavad Gita, the project explores the concept of inner vision, and the complex interplay between light and darkness, examining what is sight and sightlessness. The performance will feature regional folk, classical vocal and instrumental music that will follow a strong narrative theme, with sensitive and dramatic lighting design.

To add to the evening, a pop-up of Braille tactile art works created by the visually impaired students from SIES, Sion curated by Siddhant Shah – DAG, will be featured. Monthly lifestyle magazine in Braille, White Print, will display a selection of Braille - tactile alphabet books in Hindi and English known as 'Tactabet'.

Students from various institutions for the visually impaired- The National Association for the Blind (NAB), Victoria Memorial School for the Blind (VMSB) and Access for All will be part of the audience.

Come, be a part of this special event at:
Venue: Royal Opera House, Mama Parmanand Marg, Mumbai.
Date &Time: Monday, 17th September 2018 at 7:00 pm.
