”More”

 

It places the complete subjugation of the self to the basic negativities. It depicts the self, overcoming the royal platform and its complete obliteration. 

Finally, the realisation that the dark negative forces are always there within us, is also communicated to the audience making then a participatory component of the performance. 

The socio-politics, the socio-economical conflict and the socio- psychological parameters – all are brought into the countenance since, they all play a pivotal role in this veritable tag of war that happens every day in the contemporary as well as historical scenario

KONFLIKT

 A three dimensional visual representation of what we call or more appropriately what we mean by a human life. It explores the thin line where the three states of mind, unconscious, subconscious and conscious meets with the three human natures, sattva, rajo and tamo guna with the changes of three major phases of life, childhood to youth, youth to young age and young age to old age.

”More”

 

 The reflection of unconscious mind, storehouse of our deep-seated emotions and memories of repressed desires or traumas can be seen in the people of “tamo guna”.Childhood reflects this fluctuating state of mind that is unable to decide between good and bad and follows the only biological needs like animals. Youth represents the “rajo guna” which can be linked with the consciousness of mind having the quality of being focused always on the desired goal. Again, People with sattvo guna has rich knowledge of outer world and so the old age mainly projects this “guna” for having the experience of life. Older people thus reflect on life with having the active subconscious state of mind. 

 This play addresses the contemporary issue of our conflicted judgment towards ourselves and others with a nude performance that stands as a strong metaphor of complex and multifaceted concept of conflict. 

Note:  This play contains nudity, restricted to over 21
