Karuppu, a Theatre Dance Performance 12th April


At Indianostrum Theatre, Pondicherry.

Karuppu, this is the black spot that we put on the cheek of a newborn. . .

Karuppu, is the nocturnal silhouette that will try to seize us at the corner of a deserted street. . .

Karuppu is the spirit that keeps the man alert. . .

Karuppu is the goddess kali, the ultimate from of energy, the one needed to destroy everything. . .

Karuppu, it is also a word without god, without creator, without the paternal gure omnipresent where the man alone in the face of his destiny, learns to tame the dark forces.

Karuppu, is not evil but the darkness contained in him of which he is wary, he conjures the hold through rituals. . .

Karuppu is the vision of a world born simply from the union between Pakriti (the feminine) and Purusha (the masculine). This union between energy and consciousness, dynamic of a whole universe is as fragile as the relationship between man and woman.
