Member Price: Rs 675 & 450/- (Plus GST)

Non-Member Price: Rs 750 & 500/- (Plus GST)

Time Wise is a labour of love: we love what we do and can’t wait to share it with the world. Time Wise brings together musicians who speak several different ‘languages’—from the idioms of jazz and blues to Hindustani classical music. Everything we have heard, and everything we play, feeds into the new lexicon we are devising together.

Ranging from swing in the form of canonical pieces like ‘Take Five’ and ‘Cocktails for Two’ to the more rhythmically quirky originals such as ‘In a Thread’ and ‘Fits’, the set will leave the audience with more questions than answers about the shape of things to come.
‘OGANGA!’ – A Tribute to the Life of Dr. Albert Schweitzer

Venue: Tata Theatre

Date: 10th July 2022

Time: 6:30 pm


Member Price: Rs 750,563 & 375/- (Inclusive of GST)

Non-Member Price: Rs 1000,750 & 500/- (Inclusive of GST)

This tribute explores the extraordinary saga of an extraordinary man, Dr. Albert Schweitzer. ‘Oganga!’ brings to life the journey of a man who forsook a comfortable life and felt impelled to live and work as a doctor in the jungles of Equatorial Africa, a man who offered unconditionally, a lifetime of service to the poorest and most wretched of his fellow human beings, with great compassion, humility and love. Remarkably, he was also a true Renaissance man, a theologian, a musician, a virtuoso organist, a prolific writer and author, a profound philosopher, but above all, a great humanist. This work, written by Dr. Farokh E. Udwadia, eminent physician and author, is a meditation on a life of selflessness, heroism, sacrifice and above all, universal love for all God’s creation. Interspersed with Bach’s works, this is also a work where the love of music that binds the two good doctors—the subject and the writer—comes alive onstage.

Photo Workshops

Cameraless Photography By Mayuresh Moghe

Photography means making an image with the help of light. Although the first thing that comes to our mind when we think of photography is a camera, there are several alternative methods and processes which can be used to make a photographic image without the use of a camera. This talk is about some of these processes which have been practised by image makers since the invention of photography. The speaker will also give a demo of how to make ‘cyanotypes’ without a camera.
