Through three small tales, one from mythology, one from south of India and one from some History texts' we realise that while we keep talking of development and evolution; while the world moved from reality to the world wide web; as far as humans are concerned - Nothing really has changed from the beginning of the world till date.

Wari is a curated storytelling production created by Nicky Chandam and Anuja Jaiman for Octave Foundation which is a not for profit organization registered in Manipur. The word Wari means story in Manipuri language

ABOUT OCTAVE FOUNDATION:

The Genesis: Growing up in a decade that has witnessed innumerable socio-political conflicts, the founders of the organization recognized that creative arts and performance arts transcend all boundaries by forming a language of their own. If we have to bring people together, we have to delve deeper into our roots and give platforms of convergence to celebrate ethnic diversities that build our cultural ethos. The more people get an exposure to cultures other than their own, the greater the inclusivity. It is not just about presenting an event, but to allow for meaningful interactions at the same time supporting dying art forms by making them accessible to all. With that belief in mind, in 2015 Octave Foundation was formed to carry forward that vision through actionable goals.

Vision: Octave Foundation aims to bring people together to celebrate the cultural diversity of our planet.

Mission Statement: To build platforms for cultural interactions and centres for learning that promote and preserve diverse cultural heritage, and build inclusivity and encourage peaceful interactions between India’s North Eastern states with the rest of the country.
