Re-Storying the Ramayana

Join us for Re-Storying the Ramayana: A Role-Playing Game Virtual Program, a FREE event by the Asian Art Museum on THURSDAY, JUNE 3 at 4PM PST.

Be a part of bringing the #Ramayana out of the past and into the future with the most recent episode of the speculative cinema project Forest Tales, a queer/crip ecofeminist retelling of the #SouthAsian epic. In this interactive virtual event presented in celebration of #Pride Month, artist Anuj Vaidya and poet and performer Jessica Stokes reimagine the story of the vulture Jatayu using performance, poetry, collaborative storytelling, and role-playing games. Instead of dying after losing a wing as in the original epic, here Jatayu is resurrected with a prosthetic wing, only to face the extinction of his kind. (In India, three species of vulture are currently facing extinction due to the use of a bovine painkiller.) Can we help Jatayu imagine an alternative future and find healing for our disabled ecologies?

ASL interpretation will be provided. Please register for free tickets.
