A busy year for the centre with major programmes taking place in autumn, including a performance of Camellia by the Tagore Centre Youth Forum and Chando-Encanto, a collaboration of Spanish and classical Indian Dance.
Camellia, a play based on a poem written by Rabindranath Tagore in the early 1900s, is about a young man who falls in love with a beautiful girl. Performed by the Tagore Centre Youth Forum, this physical theatre addresses the issues of class prejudice by showing the difference amongst the social classes in Calcutta during that period through a common theme of a boy who falls in love with a girl.
Chando-Encanto, performed by the Sujata Banerjee Dance Company, was a fusion of Spanish and Classical Indian Dance, where internationally renowned dancers joined forces to produce a stunning performance of integrated world dance.
With support from Awards for All and the Haringey Neighbourhood Renewal Community Chest funding, distributed by the Scarman Trust.
The centre, together with the Royal Commonwealth Society, held a celebration of Rabindranath Tagore's life and works at The Commonwealth Club in November 2003.
This was a visual arts exhibition focused on the visual arts side of Tagore's creative output. A large and comprehensive display of reproductions of his drawings and paintings were on display.
The exhibition also included a small collection of his written work to show how versatile the artist was. Examples of his poetry, fiction, drama and music were on display.
