Off-Kendrik Presents
Ekti Abhinaba Natoker Mohora
(In search of a novel play)

Ekti Abhinaba Natoker Mohora (In search of a novel play) is a dark absurd comedy that reflects the state of humankind in current times. It takes us on
a spiral of stories that are repeatedly fragmented leaving one wondering what is
true. An ensemble cast of human and non-human characters create a collective collage of the despair and ludicrousness of our current life.

Mark your calendars for this rarely performed operatic gem! Composed in the late 1600s, Venus & Adonis is believed to be the earliest surviving English opera. Playful Cupid pierces his mother Venus with one of his arrows. She promptly falls in love with the beautiful youth Adonis and sends his off hunting with his comrades. Then the drama begins as Adonis is felled by a wild boar! Our opera is a fascinating window into the period and a musical gem that sparkles anew for us today.

In the Gallery

Adriana G. Prat is an academically-trained scientist with a PhD in Biophysics.
After moving to the USA from Argentina, a more introspective life revealed her call to become a visual artist. Her abstract paintings often depict maps, islands, or the cells of organisms, signaling that she has not abandoned her scientific tendencies. 
 
In her current solo exhibit, Topographies of the Collective Misfortunes, Prat heavily explores both the climate crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic through evocative topog­raphies. An avid advocate for environmental change, she hopes her work will create a dialogue that endows awareness of the alarming state of our planet and challenges the human-made crisis.
