Product description

A brief illustrated introduction to the spectacular, centuries-old but still "undiscovered" Gavari dance-drama, the Bhil tribe’s 40-day folk opera in India's princely state of Mewar. Gavari ceremonies offer a stunning swirl of enchanting dance, mythic history, biting satire and religious ecstasy. Participants go shoeless, celibate and strictly vegan for the entire 40-day cycle, and offer 6- to 7-hour performances in a different village every day. Thematically Gavari playlets celebrate Nature, courage and goddess energy as well as publicize trials affecting their lives. Despite being a marvelously unique folk theater tradition that lights up hundreds of villages around Udaipur each September, it remains unknown to the outside world both in India and abroad. This mysterious disregard is now threatening its future and this booklet attempts to suggest both Gavari’s rough glory and how it enriches our world.
