Our Dream

Shadhona believes that performance is understood as an individual and communal act, which aims at the transcendence of everyday limits of consciousness, and, merely, through the process itself, is capable of transforming the world we live in.

Cultural Mapping

.

Shadhona is an institute situated in the heart of Dhaka city. Other than being an institute for the cultivation of different performative practices of the sub-continent, we also promote cultural tourism, safeguarding of ICH traditions through practice and exposure for the performing artists, exchange programs and extensive documentations through photography and video recordings. Through our work we have promoted Intangible Cultural Heritages of Bangladesh, like Lathi Khela, Manipuri dance, and the folk ritual performances of the ‘snake litanies’ of Manasamangal, in particular ‘Behular Lachardi’. As a measure for ensuring transmission we also conduct regular workshops and long-term training programs.
Presently, Shadhona and the National Crafts Council Of Bangladesh are involved in a ‘Pilot Inventory of ICH Practices within the Manipuri Communities of Bangladesh’.
