Last night, I met Paul and Shaz to go to the premiere of Rudra’s (www.rudraonline.org) new music video directed by Jacen Tan (www.hosaywood.com) at The Substation (www.substation.org). It’s a free event and you pay whatever you want to support the artists.
The programme was supposed to start at 8pm. We got there about 7.40pm to ensure that we got a seat (despite already sending in a reservation earlier). However, the entire thing didn’t start till close to 9pm. But still it ended before 10, so it’s cool. Also, I witnessed possibly the most restraint moshing ever!
1. Music Video Screening
2. Behind-the-scenes footages
3. Q&A with band, filmmaker and cast
4. Special performance by RUDRA
Rudra collaborated with dancers from Apsara Asia (www.apsara-asia.com.sg) and Maya Dance Theatre (www.mayadancetheatre.org) to create this video depicting the Kurukshetra War. The Bhagavad Gita is a text close to my heart because it’s my father’s legacy to my sisters and I. We grew up worshipping Krishna in a small, local community and often held kirtans at our home.
Here are some pictures from last night’s event.
