Three Strings and a Hammer
Be a voyeur! Witness a classic family feud unfold - Brahms caught between the essentially percussive piano on the one hand, and the sustained, singing voices of the violin, viola and cello on the other. How does it pan out?
“Three Strings and a Hammer” is presented by Kolkata Classics with pianist Jennifer Heemstra, violinist Wendy Case, violist Kirsten Docter and cellist Amir Eldan.

Moving the Frame to Frame the Moves
A discursive look at dance/choreography/cinematography in Indian Cinema
The talk will explore the umbilical link between dance & choreography within the very construction and inception of the cinematic frame and the 'moving image' on the Indian screen. It will take a look at some of the iconic moments of framing the moves on the Indian screen, which led to a significant recalibration of moving the frame to newer realizations of space, time and duration.
