WHAT'S IN THE NAME RED CURTAIN ?

Most storytellers, in all cultures, use the device of a curtain, as a magical threshold...the boundary between the real world and the world of imagination that is created by a performer.

The colour red symbolises the power, richness and fertility of the imagination—all of which live in the timeless stories of this and any age.

(And there's one more reason: in the period of confinement due to COVID-19, these performance videos were shot against a red curtain in the apartment in New York that Preeti shares with her husband and daughter!)
