Contemporary Dance: BHU | EARTH

‘It wails; it shouts in his body. Something is suffocating... His skin bag feels too tight. Something is missing. Some anger and violence are inside him. As far as he can remember, he always loved to fight... That’s why when he meets the Kalaripayattu master, he thinks he will learn from him the secrets to become a great fighter. But in fact, the latter teaches him how to fight his demons, his fears, his ego. The master teaches him how to dance with the elements, earth, water, fire, air and ether as well as with the wild beasts. But will he let “his body become all eyes,” always in a state of alertness, one with Nature, one with Shakti -- the deep feminine energy that makes everything move?
