Once I Was Titania

US Premiere

 

Run time:  14 minutes
Synopsis:   
MADHURA  is an amazing woman, who has lived as many lives as a cat!  She studied philosophy, ran a lighting company with her boyfriend, working with bands like Status Quo,was an actress in repertory theatre and in the West End of London, and lived in an ashram in India for several years where she met Indira Ghandi.  
She also lived on a boat near Seattle, where she discovered yet another career as a designer and decorator –  as well as creating extraordinarily intricate and precise pieces of embroidery.
As a dancer she was one of those annoying people who can do the splits with no effort…
However this beautiful and agile body slowly changed as she got older. Madhura developed rheumatoid arthritis, which slowly, bit by painful bit, stole her capacity to walk, to stand, to use her hands.
But instead of becoming bitter and complaining she remains her witty, humourous self – making wry fun of her own situation and using what movement remains in her swollen and twisted hands to paint in the manner of the old Chinese Daoist painters – who used minimum effort to create exquisitely subtle and delicate pieces of art.
