Hindu mythology speaks about cycles of creation and destruction / cataclysms. These are not only human tragedies, they encompass the submergence of the earth and cosmic destruction. But life regenerates. It might not be in the form and shape we expect or are comfortable with, but new life arrives as the old disintegrates.

Scottish Asian storyteller, Gauri Raje, will bring 5 such Hindu epic stories from the stories of Vishnu — spanning the sinking of the earth, a great flood on earth, the tyranny of cosmic kings, the destructive power of righteousness and sages going viral with their curses. What keeps the hope, life and wonder alive after each catastrophe?

This live performance will be followed by a Q & A so you can ask Gauri questions.
