For the Godrej centenary pavilion, Ishara created an animation with large body puppets and movement, to the famous poem by Rabindranath Tagore

“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake “

The performance played on a height, in a large acrylic mirror finished drum that acted as a scrim, Animating every hour for 15 minutes, with spectacular lighting music and narration.

The pavilion was designed by Oriel Design .


Teamwork Films was commissioned by the State Government of Madhya Pradesh and the Ministry of Culture & Tourism to design and produce the Inaugural ceremony of the Khajuraho Millennium Celebrations, by the President of India. The ceremony set in the midst of the sacred Shiv Sagar lake, washed in a thousand shades of orange by the setting sun, with the magnificent temples in silhouette, recreated the legend revolving around the birth of the Chandela dynasty. The event was telecast live across the nation and was watched by an estimated 35 million people.
