Maya, Curator, Partner & Organisation


In creating..

.. a space where other cultures can simply be, where words flow into music, where one ceases to notice where one language begins and another ends, as if this was the most natural thing in the world; moving into a space of Akzeptanz, rather than existing as a representative of one culture in order to consume another. (Jim Jordan, 2001)

Maya, is a celebration of this space: Organized and curated by Anuradha Genrich, from Team Sadhana – Organisation for dance, music and interdisciplinary art, under the Anugraham initiative.

This event is supported by the Indian Embassy Austria to mark the 75 years of Diplomatic relations between India & Austria.
