Many Facets of Love in Tagore Songs and Poetry
Baithak UK
Get Direction

The production explores the many facets of love hidden and revealed in the music and poetry of Rabindranath Tagore. Dipping into chapters of the poet’s life, his poetry, songs, and letters, this is a journey through myriad emotions and experience. Tagore’s love for his muse and many inspirations, his passionate involvement with nature and the sensual world, his love for the transcendental and divine, and at a time of nationalism his fervent love for the motherland, we journey through these nuanced words with storytelling, poetry, and song.

Sangeeta Datta, the storyteller, and singer, collaborates with talented artists who choreograph immersive worlds of words, textures, movement & music.

Sangeeta Datta is trained in Tagore music and has written/ directed many acclaimed productions in the UK and India.
