KOCHI: As the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB) inches towards a close, the last few weeks will feature an exciting line-up of not-to-miss performances, music concerts and film screenings.  

In the ‘closing week,’ from March 22 to 29, KMB’s participating artists Anamika Haksar and Padmini Chettur will present repeat performances at Aspinwall House and David Hall respectively, following public demand.


Anamika, a veteran theatre practitioner, will perform the second series of ‘Composition on Water,’ her drama production on the struggle for water among marginalised communities. Danseuse Padmini will perform Varnam, her three-hour-long take on the titular Bharatanatyam composition. Rehearsals for both the programmes will be open to the public.


Starting March 11 and running up to the end of the Biennale, visitors to Aspinwall House will get a chance to participate in a unique virtual-reality experience presented by filmmaker Anand Gandhi.
On the sidelines of the main event, there will be performances by popular musicians and folk artists.

Kathakali maestro Kalamandalam Gopi, Carnatic singer T M Krishna, Sufi musician Mukhtiyar Ali, playback singer Smriti Minocha and Sarangi exponent Vasanti Shrikhande are slated to perform as South Asia’s biggest contemporary art festival comes to an end.


On March 29, the closing ceremony will feature a unique programme by music band Thaikkudam Bridge.   Meanwhile, KBF will conduct a series of discussions and seminars in the final days.
