A dance theatre show inspired by the oldest martial art of the world: Kalaripayattu, produced by Kalarigram, Ritam Auroville, Les porteurs d’eau, in partnership with Auroville art service.
India has a deep and ancient tradition of connecting with the Bhuthas (Five Elements): earth, water, fire, air and ether. The Bhuthas are universal. Through connecting with them, humans can reconnect with the origin and cradle of consciousness that is the source of all matter.
In this show the artists invoke the spirit of the BHU element (earth). The Kalari warrior carries, in his body, the memory of the earth. Through this process, they are able to reconnect to the pure origin that keeps him in motion with the heartbeat of the earth. The artists create a dialogue between the earth and the body of the performers, music and the audience.
