Celebrate Holi: A Cultural Exploration

March 07, 2020

Join Kahaaniya for Kids as they present a very special puppet show incorporating a colorful narrative dance to celebrate the free spirit within all of us. Our story begins with Pallavi, a children’s author, who receives a surprise invitation from a fan named Maya to come celebrate the Festival of Holi in India! The audience will be magically transported to India, where Maya and her neighbors are getting ready for the celebrations. As Pallavi talks to all the neighbors, she learns the true meaning behind this colorful festival. One of Maya’s wise neighbors tells us about Lord Krishna and how his free spirit was loved by everyone. Lord Krishna taught people young and old to be true to themselves and celebrate their inner child. Holi festival is celebrated with colors, music, dance, and fun! The Michael C. Carlos Museum will continue the celebration with an exciting Art Studio Takeover in honor of their newest exhibit, Transcendent Deities of India. Join their staff in the Studio from 11 AM to 4:30 PM to make betel leaf artwork of the Hindu deity Ganesha!
