Ten-second takeaway 

Lahe Lahe, a new ‘expression space’ in town, is all set to officially launch with a weekend-long festival. And, there’s quite a lot to look forward to!

All for expression

When Nikhil Thard and his wife, Mansee, set out with the idea for a community space in the city, they envisioned a place where people could take a break from their busy schedules, slow down and give free rein to their expressions. And, that’s exactly what you can expect at Lahe Lahe {an Assamese phrase which means slowly slowly}, an all-new cultural space and performance venue which will be officially launched this weekend. Located on a rooftop terrace {in Indiranagar}, the couple call it an expression space. So, whether it’s music, dance, poetry, theatre, art or any other form, you can express yourself without any inhibitions. Perfect for all those closet poets and amateur artistes! Keep an eye out for their upcoming events which include music jams, performances, poetry gatherings, workshops and even potlucks.

Event highlights

Going all out for its launch, they have a three-day festival with a lineup of artistic events, ranging from film screenings to puppet making for kids. Theatre folks have Plaback Theatre by The Actors Collective, a session by Tahatto and even an introductory acting workshop by city-based artistes, Sharath Parvatavani and Rajshri to look forward to while aspiring writers can flock to the slam poetry and prompt writing workshops. With Odissi performances, yoga sessions, talks, tango initiation and demo, and even a karaoke session, the weekend looks promising. Don’t forget to take a look at the art and photo exhibits which will be on display. Oh, and a bunch of spine-chilling horror stories by Wordman to end celebration!
