The Tale of the Mudras

Electronic Language International Festival
From bedtime stories to folklore shared amongst generations, storytelling is integral to many cultures. In my animation I unite two cultures – Brazilian and Southern Indian – by using Mudras to tell the tale of Bumba Meu Boi. Mudras are expressive hand gestures that depict a story in “Bharatanatyam” dance, while Bumba Meu Boi symbolizes Brazil’s rich history of tales and of dance as a communicative form.
