Savitri - dancing in the forest of death (2012)

Savitri – dancing in the forest of death is the story of a woman’s journey of loss, search, discovery and spiritual freedom through love. What happened between Yama and Savitri during their conversation after Satyavan’s death? This is the question at the center of our piece, built from The Book of the Forest in the Mahabharata. What emerged is a unique mode of dance that speech is allowed to break through. Dance carries the forms of the past, but the dancer, who must play every figure in this story, cannot suppress her own voice, which is the form of the present. Thus we are allowed to hear Savitri, both a character from a story thousands of years old and a modern woman with the full awareness and independence of all living in the world today.
