A FLUX Initiative
Ode to resistance is a FLUX initiative, supporting resistance against coercion.
Freedom, justice and equality being at the centre of this discourse – FLUX is launching a 2 week long community gatherings centered around Film screenings, live music jam, theatre and dance performances.
Please note that this is an Art for Change initiative by FLUX. Also, entry to all these gatherings, events and performances is free of charge. In fact we would encourage you to bring your friends, family members and others along. Let all of you participate in this series of art events in Bangalore actively!
Musical Peace Jam
We mark the ode to resistance with a musical peace jam that will take place on Jan 26th, Sunday at 7 pm. At 8 pm we will open the space for improv jamming so please bring your musical instruments. The songs will be about peace and harmony – something we feel we have lost over the last few months as a nation.
Film Screenings: 3 Art Events in Bangalore at FLUX
On Jan 25th, Saturday we will be screening ‘The boy in the striped pajamas’ at 7:30 pm.
Directed by Mark Herman, the film talks about a time during the Second World War and depicts the story from two young boys’ perspective.
On Feb 1st, Saturday, we will be screening ‘So sorry’ directed by Ai Wei Wei. This is a documentary that talks about holding governments responsible – particularly through this one – that narrates a tragic earthquake in China (Sichuan) and the students who died due to corrupt governmental constructions. The documentary asks many pertinent questions.
On Feb 2nd, Sunday, we will be screening ‘Om Dar-b-dar’ directed by Kamal Swaroop. This film is considered a pioneer in the Indian avant garde cinema. Hence we need not say more about this!
We would love you to come and watch these films with us. After that we will be opening a space for conversations and discussions around these screenings after each film.
Theatre Productions: 3 More Art Events in Bangalore at FLUX
On Feb 7th, we will bring the Ode to resistance to a close with 3 physical theatre and playback theatre productions centered on the topics of resistance, individual freedom, collective freedom, equality, dignity, free expression and fundamental rights.
At 6:30 pm, we will be presenting the second edition of ‘Somewhere before the Rebellion’ – an improvised physical theatre piece.
7:30 pm to 9 pm – Bangalore Playback Ensemble will be presenting a Playback Theatre Piece as ode to resistance through Personal Stories.
9 pm to 10 pm – the x sense contemporary dance course students in collaboration with the Improv foundation course students will be presenting a physical theatre piece called ‘Do You Like The Weather’.

What is a series of arts events?
A series is a set of arts events arranged to be performed as a series in a short gap of time. Such a series has its cumulative effect on these performances as being connected to one another.
How do you create a series of arts event?
You need to create a buzz about the series in a thematic manner so that they all have a common theme to conform. People who are interested in such themes respond in a positive manner.
What are examples of a series of arts event?
Some good examples of a series of arts events are festivals getting organized in the fields of dance, theatre, music, films and many other genres of arts. We often see them getting organized.
