Choreography for 11 dancers
Eleven or the human becoming shows a dialog between an old man and a child about the world statement, dangers and charms. Both, they symbolise humanity.
Their emotions are played by 9 actors representing the 9 navarasa: Sringara, Hasya, Karuna, Raudra, Vira, Bhayanaka, Bibhatsa, Adbhuta and Shanta.
Through their stories, the two narrators interact. The old man shares his experience, pains and moments of joy, the kid is more tempted by his curiosity, ignorance and recklessness.
Somewhere on the stage, television screens casts of news images. It’s a newscast.
The challenge of Eleven project is to work on both ends of the theatrical practice: From traditional Kathakali codes to collective improvisation.
