Time stood still

As our lives changed overnight

The days turned in to weeks and the weeks melted in to months

We waited patiently as time flew by

We kept looking out for a sign

And out of no where one day

We turned around to take a look inside

For once, we didn’t just look, we actually began to see

The view from our window had begun to change

With every sunrise and every sunset came a promise of hope

As the clouds dispersed

For the sun to shine through

We saw our city like never before

We witnessed the power of nature with so much awe

As we tended to our plants

Our souls began to heal

As we nourished our bodies

And indulged in play

We began learning new skills

As we stretched out the realm of our minds

For once, we had the gift of time

As the light we searched for, lit us from within

The darkness around us began to fade

Together we stood still but our world began to move

As the view from our windows began to change

We were still us but we no longer could remain the same

“The concept of sharing views from people’s windows came amidst the global lockdown of many countries; where everyone was limited to the views from their windows and people found creative ways to find inspiration. We were pleasantly surprised to receive images from around the world and are so happy share them on our online channel for everyone to view!” says Sahar Mahmood – Founder of Selfie TV

“Raffu” an unconventional Urdu play from Dubai!

Dhruti - Meraki
Dhruti Shah

 “Raffu – Aik Lamtnahi Dastan (Story of Infinity)” makes its debut at The Junction, Alserkal Avenue on Friday, 13 & Saturday 14 March 2020 – at 7:30 PM on 13 March, and two shows on 14 March at 3:30 PM and 7:30 PM

Raffu (Urdu for Darning) is an inventive piece of writing by Dubai-based photographer-writer Durdana Farid that attempts to explore delicate human emotions. This play, in essence, is a movement against indifference – the voice of buried emotions that never get to be heard. It follows a successful run of the UAE’s most acclaimed Urdu play “Mian, Biwi aur Wagah” that enthralled audience’s with 17 shows worldwide (Dubai, New Delhi, and Karachi), Dubai-based performing artist Dhruti Shah is set to entrance the city’s ardent theatre enthusiasts with yet another originally devised directorial Urdu-language theatre production, “Raffu – Aik Lamtnahi Dastan (Story of Infinity).”

Raffu 2

“We didn’t host conventional auditions, instead we sat and had a chat with the aspiring actors; for Raffu, our search was not for good actors, instead we were seeking out good people who shared our passion for storytelling. It took us months to find all our actors and to our surprise none of them but one were native Urdu speakers. However, all of them were perfect for the roles and hence began our journey of learning and unlearning; It was very rewarding as a writer to be able to guide the characters with the language, together we overcame the struggles of learning the correct pronunciations intact with learning the right emotions behind the lines, with each passing rehearsal, I could see the growth and bonding of the actors with their characters.” says Durdana Farid

Raffu 3

“Raffu is a culmination of two-years of inner exploration and reflection, purging, personal journeys, ancient indigenous practices of understanding human wounds and developing the faculty of compassion. With our deeply woven process of arts, we hope to touch hearts and souls, and believe that our efforts will be paid forward, in order for us to be able to reach out to as many people as we can. We are humbly requesting for all the support we can get to spread the word and for as many people to come and experience this soulful play from Dubai!”adds Dhruit Shah

Raffu 5

Raffu is made up of eight strong characters that harmoniously weave an authentic story.

CIPHER: Containing nothing, it encircles everything – without a beginning, without an end, it stretches from emptiness to infinity and back again – Played by Nabila Ouanes, she is from Algeria.

BILQUEES: Symbol of sensitivity – played by Farzana who is from South India and probably has worked the hardest to learn and deliver her lines in Urdu.

KIMAYA: Mythical bird – alter ego and healer to Bilquees, symbol of hope and light – played by Vrinda – has no lines. She is the movement of the play.

MERAKI:
Storyteller / universe / raffugar – Played by Dhruti Shah.

JUGNU: Lightworker / miracle worker – also known as the tree of scars illuminating as fireflies – Played by Johan D’souza.

MADHO: The scarred fool. A victim of delirium and madness stirred by the human race. A voice of conscience and vulnerability – a sacred clown.  – Played by Karan Hanj.

DILAWAR: Magician – symbol of a perfect ill sion and shadows –Played by Yasir Akhlaq from Multan, and the only actor whose native language is Urdu with Mother tongue being Punjabi and Saraiki.

AMMA: Madho’s mother – symbol of past / childhood scars / stifled wounds – played by Falaq Tahir from Kashmir.

Raffu is jointly conceptualised and developed by Dhruti and Durdana, the play is a highly sensorial drama on the universal landscape of human emotions, and utilises an unconventional form of storytelling through theatre as a medium, inviting the audience to awaken their imagination while seamlessly move into the language of metaphors, mystery, and perhaps, the unknown. The play’s language is Urdu. However, it is a story of human emotions. The message of the play is an attempt to launch a movement against the indifferences ingrained into each and every one of us. The shows are on 13th & 14th of March at the Junction Dubai, tickets are priced at AED 100 and are available on BookMyShow: http://bit.do/bookmyshow-raffu

 Show Timings:

– Friday, 13 March – 7:30 PM

– Saturday, 14 March – 3:30 PM and 7:30 PM

Gates open on Friday at 6:45 PM

Gates open on Saturday at 2:45 PM and 6:45 PM respectively

Run Time: 110-minutes (includes a 10-minute interval)

Language: Urdu

 

About Raffu:

Raffu is an honest attempt to lay bare the sensitivity of complex emotions we are often indifferent to. Its characters contain a fierceness which compel the audience to experience an inner journey that is personal both to the observer and the observed. What is reflected in each character has been crafted to awaken, and continue to unravel, what is buried within. Raffu is inspired and devised on the foundational philosophy of the ancient Japanese art form of Kintsugi. When a ceramic object breaks, you don’t discard or disregard its brokeness — you fill its cracks with gold, to illuminate the uniqueness of its tarnished beauty. The play transcends labels of positives and negatives, and instead firmly dives into unalloyed feelings and experiences just as is, without altering its natural course.

 

At the heart of it, we have woven threads of pathos and feeling into each character, that I wish in good faith the audience experiences catharsis along with them; to unravel the wisdom and healing of many untouched stories within. As in Kintsugi, Raffu is a symbol of the strength and beauty that lies in deep human scars.

 

Note to Editors: An experiential and absorbing meditation on the universal landscape of human emotions, Raffu (Urdu for Darning) is a sensorial storytelling phenomenon directed by Dhruti Shah and written by Durdana Farid. This 110-minutes Urdu language performance piece invites the audience to awaken their imagination, and seamlessly move into the language of metaphors, mystery, and perhaps, the unknown.

“The Trend Setter” a Fashion Label with family roots! An exclusive interview with Co-founder Farheen Sheikh

WhatsApp Image 2020-01-10 at 6.26.05 PM (1)Farheen Sheikh and her Sister in Law Afshan Jamil are the duo behind The Trend Setter

WhatsApp Image 2020-01-18 at 7.59.04 PM

The Makeup Artist I was born and raised in Dubai. I have lived all my life here and been fortunate enough to get some great opportunities to explore my passion. I have been fortunate to have immense support from my family and friends, after graduating in Arts I instantly started working in the makeup industry with some international brands, such as Guerlain, Philosophy, Bloom, Tony n Tina, Paul Neuhaus to name a few. Due to my passion for makeup, it lead me to pursue CIBTAC diploma programme in Theatrical Media makeup; this experience truly changed my perspective and I learnt amazing makeup techniques that allowed me to further flourish as a makeup Artist.

The Zest for Fashion After completing my CIBTAC Diploma; I got incredible exposure which allowed me to meet some legendary makeup artists and led me to work on many Fashion Shows and shoots. It was working at the fashion shows that I began developing an interest in the Fashion industry and was the initial push for me to dabble in a Fashion line under the label Reenz back in 2009, leading up to a very successful Solo Exhibition of my work in 2010. My line included the formals in chiffon and laces and casuals in lawn and cotton . Since, my first line itself I kept plus sizes in different styles which was highly appreciated and I continue that sensitive approach to fashion in Trendsetters too.

WhatsApp Image 2020-01-10 at 6.26.04 PM

Sisterly partnership Our partnership for The Trend Setter really came about coincidentally; one fine day while I was organizing for my own upcoming exhibition; my sister in law Afshan, came up to me for some guidance and wanted to brainstorm some ideas regarding her label the The Trend Setter. In no time we felt like a team and things started to shape up. Since then on we have taken up, exchanged and shared responsibilities in ways which we now love to look back at and are still enjoying it everyday. Last but not the least we can’t complete our team without having to mention our all rounder support system Salman Sheikh, my brother who has been the supportive Man behind our success.

WhatsApp Image 2020-01-10 at 6.26.09 PM

The Trend Setter is a one stop shop that cater to modern women who wear modesty as their fashion label. It’s Fashion forward with a modest twist, we aim to represent how modesty can be a style statement and how it could be paired with show-stopping grace and elegance. We promote a different kind of fashion and we love to support and give back to our society. Our target is not sales, our target is to reach out to people.

WhatsApp Image 2020-01-18 at 8.00.10 PM

Advice for newcomers I feel women today are stronger then men. They are blessed with an ability of multi tasking. We are more forgiving ourselves, kinder to our needs and goals. Unknowingly, women are the main Trend Setter at home, to their kids and their community, a working woman is an inspiration to her own family. The key is to focus on a plan, get organized, and find the right balance between profession and parenthood. Keep dreaming and take one small step each day towards your goal and passion. Pen down your goals and set a target to achieve them. Never try to be someone other than yourself and let it flow organically.

“The Vanishing Pole” explores the extreme climate change affecting the wildlife; this show depicts Nitin Michael’s collection of photographs taken during his recent expedition to the Arctic. Nitin Michael went on his first ever safari when he was 14 years old, and fell in love with wildlife instantly. An avid traveler and wildlife lover, Nitin has been an active contributor in the wildlife photography industry over the last ten years.

Hermis Haridas – Co Founder of Nature Art Trails Institute says,  “Nature Art Institute believes in telling stories through photographs; hosting Nitin’s work is a step towards sharing a devastating fact about our current climate crisis and how its directly impacting the wildlife. According to WWF, the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. The average temperature of the Arctic has increased 2.3 Degrees Celsius since 1970’s and at this rate in a few years, there may be no ice left in the Arctic Ocean!”

About the founders of Paws Trails Explorers & Nature Art Institute:

Paws Trails is a global platform for wildlife conservation, photography, art and travel, initiated by two wildlife photographers, Hermis Haridas and Nisha Purushothaman, in 2015. It is now a collective dream of a group of dedicated nature and wildlife enthusiasts – you could call it a unique initiative from the UAE to spread awareness on wildlife and conservation through art and photography. With the growing concerns the world is facing, this is an initiative to transform the youth population to connect with nature and our surrounding environment, to make our planet a better place to live in.

Paws Trails started with international wildlife photography workshops, and in the last four years, has expanded to four verticals: Education, Tours, Events, and Publishing. Having started with two individuals, we now have a team of approximately 200, including but not limited to photographers, conservationists, and scientists volunteering with us on our mission.

In 2018, Paws Trails organized an international wildlife festival in Dubai along with National Geographic Abu Dhabi and Emirates Nature-WWF, which was the first of its kind of event that the Middle East had seen. We have also organized 18 international wildlife photography exhibitions in UAE, and by December 2019, Paws Trails will have published its 20th edition of its online bi-monthly magazine, PT Explorers. Finally, within its 4 years of its commencement, Paws Trails has completed more than 50 international wildlife photography workshops in various parts of the world, with an increase in its popularity.  Now is 2019 the founders of Paws Trails Explorers take a step further and founded “Nature Art Trails Institute” to continue their mission to educate and conserve.
