Life Born of Fire is what rises from the ashes. 

What beauty and life demands, insists to bloom forth. 

What raw, real gifts are we carrying from ancestors-

towards descendants and for ourselves,

our weary bodies, our lovely hearts. 


Life Born of Fire is an invitation to be together to hold

the grief and the healing, the breaking and mending.

Conceived and curated by Meena Natarajan & Ellen Marie Hinchcliffe  *  Directed by Dipankar Mukherjee
