Interconnected Tales


The stories that we create and share capture the wisdom of our lives and our environment. Over thousands of years, many stories and many different traditions of telling them have evolved and disappeared. One such 400-year-old tradition, on the brink of extinction today, is the Kaavad Katha from Rajasthan that brings together storytelling and visual craft to portray religious, mythological, social and contemporary narratives. Traditionally, the form uses a portable wooden box (also called a kaavad) that serves as a visual aid. Each box holds numerous stories that are brought to life by specialised storytellers.    


This month’s Stories at MAP series brings Interconnected Tales – a session that explores this unique storytelling tradition with theatre artist Akhshay Gandhi. Through this session, children will be introduced to the fundamental principles of this rich tradition, the craft of story building, and its performative aspects. They will also get to make and take back their own kaavads


Stories at MAP is a series that is based on connecting art, storytelling, and our lived realities. 


Suitable for children between the ages 8 to 12 years. This is a paid event with limited seats available.
