Presenting Bhu! Earth: a creative collaboration by Kalarigram, the French theatre company Water Carriers, and Ritam, Auroville.
Bhu (or earth in Sanskrit), is a show that fuses moves from Kerala's martial art form Kalaripayattu, with elements of contemporary music and theatre. Blending the ancient with the modern, the play is a contemporary dance based on Kalaripayattu, one of the ancient martial art forms.
The production, which is said to be inspired by one of the world's oldest martial art forms, Kalaripayattu, seeks to provide the audience an immersive experience in what is, at its core, a tribute to Mother Earth.
The theatre production is anchored in the ancient Indian tradition of connecting with the Bhuthas (five elements): earth, water, fire, air, and ether. According to this philosophic thought, through connecting with the five elements, humans can reconnect with the very source of all matter as they attain a state of supreme consciousness.
The narrative follows the tortuous journey of a warrior that turns into an inward quest for a consummate harmony of body, earth, and nature.
