staring anxiously at the mobile phone placed next to her arm On a wall behind her is a poster of Osmania University in Hyderabad a hub of the violent protests and student suicides that have accompanied Telangana politics over the last three years The woman is possibly awaiting a phone call perhaps from her son about his safety who might be studying at the university This is Ringtone which was on display at Jehangir Art gallery in Mumbai last year as part of the exhibition “Fellow Travellers” It is one of the many paintings by Hyderabad-based artist Laxman Aelay which capture the struggles of the inhabitants of Telangana Forty-nine-year-old Aeley’s journey is often reminiscent of MF Husain’s whose tryst with art began as a painter of film posters while the former worked as a signboard painter “When I went to study in Hyderabad I was working as a book illustrator and I had done nearly 1000 illustrations for non-fiction Dalit and Bahujan literature poetry and feminist books I worked with feminist activists and was highly influenced by their vision of Telangana” he says When he returned to his village Kadirenigudem in Nalgonda district its harsh realities offered a stark contrast to the city life he had experienced “There was no water and the area was very dry I had not noticed this as a child” he says Soon his work would be inhabited by the humble men and women of the village Aelay’s paintings tell stories of villagers struck by poverty and trace their daily chores He says women play a very important role in his work “In my village women are responsible for farming as well as their homes My paintings bring out the role of women in the armed struggle for Telangana” says Aelay A Telengana identity is at the root of his oeuvre Left Myths features an elderly man in a red shirt and an off-white dhoti with his back to the viewer His shirt is adorned with motifs of horses and bulls which seem handpicked by the artist from the painted scrolls used by the Mandahechulu tribe in their performances a blend of singing storytelling and illustrated scrolls which reveal the history of the cattle-rearing Golla caste in the Deccan Thota Vaikuntam often referred to as the “Jamini Roy of the south” or “Vaikuntam from Telangana” was one of the first to portray the region’s sensibilities in his works His paintings bring out a deep-rooted fascination with his native village Boorugupally “In my village one will find certain strong colours like red green and yellow in the attires of people I studied what they wear how they sit and what they hold and I gave form to these studies through my paintings” says the 72-year-old artist Women appear to be frequent subjects of his works as well His canvases portray a simple life — men carrying toddy pots on their shoulders women engaged in temple rituals or standing alongside flute-bearing men almost like Radha and Krishna While making use of polka dots Vaikuntam employs the complex wash painting method to decorate his women in vivid hues “I want to bring out my cultural identity through my art” he says Though the colours used by him might appear to signify happiness and peace the turbulent history of his land is subtly entrenched in his paintings“I did not want my paintings to look happy If you see the women I paint closely you will see the suffering on their face By looking at the colours you might think they are happy but they are sad We had other similar movements in ’78 and ’79 My friends were tortured in police stations I could not do anything My feelings are there on the canvas” he says How will a new state affect the Telangana art scene Artists from Telangana hope that the creation of the new state will revitalise and promote Telangana culture which they feel has been neglected and many of its art forms are quickly disappearing “There are experts who draw or paint small images on temple walls or on cloth depicting a scene from the Mahabharata or describing a scene from local folklore This art is becoming rare so are Burrakatha and Pandulu which are oral storytelling forms There was a time when Burrakatha used to be the main entertainment in every village of Telangana’’ says Vaikuntam “Of course while we should try to nurture art we need hospitals and schools urgently as well’’ he adds Vaikuntam also feels that certain areas of Telangana require government support encouragement and funds to prevent them from becoming extinct and to help artists who could not get an opportunity to break into the mainstream art world “The real art lies in the villages and towns where it often goes unnoticed I know many good painters and craftsmen who eke out a living as drawing teachers in Hyderabad and other nearby cities while silently pursuing their passion Government-funded exhibitions and galleries where artists can display their work are urgently needed” says Vaikuntam Artist Annavaram Srinivas agrees: “The government should establish an exclusive Telangana Arts Academy” Painter Surya Prakash is sceptical about government support “Telangana will become a state after two-three months We have to see what kind of people run the government and whether they would be interested in salvaging Telangana art A few accomplished painters and artists from Telangana receive government support but there are entire families and communities who are into some kind of art or the other that is very unique and they need a lot of support” he says In the coming years Prakash predicts that painting and music may see several changes as people celebrate the new state and the landscape starts changing “I will continue to paint my women but I am also looking at starting to paint changing Telangana landscapes and other things’’ says Vaikuntam For all the

their bodies spare and painted white some with clothes that seemed blood-stained others naked the students float in from different directions Behind them their teacher’s words soar “Imagine you’re liquid flow flow in every direction flow effortlessly” In the darkness of the night atop a hill near Lakagot village in Himachal Pradesh they whirled around in stark hyper-controlled movements like people possessed their eerie sounds of ululation breaking the stillness of the night It wasn’t a session of black magic in progress though These were students at the Subbody Resonance Butoh Himalaya a dance academy started in 2005 by 60-year-old Rhizome Lee which teaches butoh a form of Japanese dance theatre that encompasses a diverse range techniques and movements Butoh or the dance of darkness was first performed in 1959 by Hijikata Tatsumi and Ohno Kazuo It was their response to Westernised overly stylised movements of Japanese dance The grotesque gestures unpolished movements shaven heads and white body paint was a shock to the otherwise refined Japanese aesthetics Students rehearse at the school (Photo: Cheena Kapoor) Butoh can be performed in the presence or absence of an audience It calls for free-spirited performances at unsettling locations Hijikata and Ohno shared the subversiveness in their dance style but over the years both developed their own styles Hijikata’s dance was more based on Dadaism and surrealism Ohno on the other hand was a humanist He danced and communicated with his audience in identifiable characters In Nourit Masson-Sékiné and Jean Viala’s book Shades of Darkness Ohno is regarded as “the soul of butoh” while Hijikata is seen as its “architect” Hijikata was more like a technician while Ohno was a nurturing figure who influenced solo artists In the 1980s when dancers began performing outside Japan butoh began to gain some popularity During one such performance in Seattle Washington a member of the popular butoh dance group Sankai Jaku died when a rope broke The tragedy was widely reported and brought butoh into the limelight Even though it has been accepted as a performance art outside Japan after its initial flourish butoh remains relatively niche even in Japan After having travelled to various places Lee chose this quiet place in Jogibara village close to McLeodganj and set up the school Now it offers long-term courses and workshops“Butoh is the most honest dance form It defines you It is about resonating with yourself and your surroundings It is about putting your ego aside You don’t move something moves you” says Jaime Martinez a Spaniard in his early thirties who took a course in Lee’s school earlier this year Stillness in motion (Photo: Cheena Kapoor) Butoh takes inspiration from dark themes such as natural disasters disease and war The central concept of butoh is to avert fixity and accept one’s self in its entirety — the body and its many crises Lee a butoh dancer for over four decades says “It is like meditation We research inside bring out our weaknesses stop thinking and enter a subconscious world The essence of butoh is resonance In classical meditation you don’t move and try to detach yourself Here we achieve detachment by moving our body We take off the superficial mask we wear for the world and dance for anything in the universe” When Lee was in university in Kyoto in Japan Hijikata’s group came to perform there Lee was struck by the dichotomy it offered and was keen to take it up But he was married already and had just become a father He needed a job and a steady livelihood He waited 25 years painstakingly putting together savings that would help him pursue his dream some day Once his son joined work Lee finally decided to go back to butoh Under Lee’s careful guidance students from all around the world come to learn and practise butoh in this remote hill station There are not many takers in India — in all these years there have been less than 10 Indian students at his school but it enjoys a steady popularity among Europeans and Asians outside the subcontinent Lee lives on the first floor a cosy Japanese style living area and there are rooms for short-stay students on the top floor Time for some Butoh (Photo: Cheena Kapoor) During the course of their workshops the students are made to perform for the public every Friday in school premises or out on the streets In one such performance the dancers performed on a garbage patch on the streets and received mixed reactions from the locals Many villagers who were unaware of the form did not appreciate the ugliness it projected or the starkness it entailed Gio Dust 39 who now calls herself Satiji moved to McLeodganj from South Korea about four years ago learned the art form and now gives private classes She says “Our body has a lot of memories and it wants to perform them” In her opinion a butoh dancer resonates with the environment Each performance is affected by the surroundings the presence or absence of an audience weather and mood When she moves Satiji says she tries to detach herself from the world around her and delve deep into herself “Butoh for me is an alternative way of communication I communicate those emotions for which I’m short of words” she says In his book The Intensity of Nothingness well-known butoh dancer Iwana Masaki says “I have never heard of a butoh dancer entering a competition Every butoh performance itself is an ultimate expression; there is no and cannot be second or third places If butoh dancers were content with less than the ultimate they would not be actually dancing butoh for real butoh like real life itself cannot be given rankings” For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Express News
