Through his books for children, Mr. Chen has illustrated his experiences in China. He has since then lived and worked in Paris as a painter & illustrator.

SON NOM DE VENISE DANS CALCUTTA DÉSERT
Alliance Française de Bombay presents the theatrical performance – Son nom de Venise dans Calcutta désert, presented by actress Maud Andrieux.
Based on the film by Marguerite Duras with the same title, this is the story of a love affair that takes place in India in the 30s, in an overpopulated city on the banks of the Ganges. Two days in this love story are presented — It is the season of the summer-monsoon. The woman, Anne-Marie Stretter, stands in the midst of it with a grace which engulfs everything, in unfailing silence, a grace which is porous and dangerous, dangerous also for some of them…

Nadaka was born and raised in Québec City and began playing the guitar at a very young age. Following his passion & love for music across the world to India, Nadaka has designed and crafted a unique instrument of his own, a 24-string Raaga Guitar specially designed to play the subtle tones of Indian music that he often also likes to call the “Geet-Taar” (singing strings)
This Raaga Guitar combines musical elements of the veena, swarmandal, tanpura, and even guitar; into one.
