Come Saturday evening, join us for an intimate evening with Dr. Annapurni Subramaniam, Associate Professor at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics and an accomplished Carnatic classical violinist.
Dr. Annapurni will intersperse her three part violin performance with stories of stellar evolution, the intersection of her musical and astronomical practice and anything else you are curious about.
Dr. Annapurni is part of the team that is analyzing data from the Ultra-Violet Imaging Telescope aboard the Astrosat mission launched by ISRO last year. She is also deeply involved with an international consortium responsible for the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope, an extremely large telescope proposed to be constructed in Hawaii.
We’re collaborating with Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices to bring you this event. Shoonya is a beautiful space for the arts and somatic practices located on a terrace opposite Lalbagh Gardens, set up to provide an open and nourishing environment for people from diverse cultures and ages to impart knowledge, create work and share experiences around creativity, performance, health and education.
