⊥ BOROTALPADA ¬ TCC
10 Years Anniversary Celebration

On November 3, 2018, in the company of friends from the village of Borotalpada, the cities of Kolkata, New Delhi, Paris and Marseille, the organisation co-founded by the French theatre director and philosopher Jean-Frédéric Chevallier, the Indian social worker and producer Sukla Bar and 18 Borotalpada families, Trimukhi Platform celebrated its 10 years of activity in the tribal area of Jhargram, West Bengal, India.

The event was simple and joyful. During the train journey, each audience was invited to seat alone by the window for a brief performative act and remember where she or he was 10 years ago, how far from Borotalpada. Few hours and many kilometres later, after the Santhal ladies from the village washed the feet of the arriving guests, everybody went down to the lake to watch the 2018 Trimukhi Platform theatre performance happening in the water. Back at Trimukhi Cultural Centre, were showcased drafts of a video and photography exhibition and of a sound art installation, prepared by two young Santhals from the team. Then, as this out of the common aventure began one morning of 2008 with a few Santhal dance steps, it was time for an anniversary celebrating dance: following the rhythm of tamak and dumsa drums, everybody, from the village as from the cities, joined and moved together. Around midnight, after a massive (250 persons) but delightful dinner, video extracts of the works done since 2008 (theatre performances, photography workshops, construction of the cultural centre, nights-long festival of contemporary performing arts) were projected on the wall of a newly build mud house while, in the Cultural Centre, the youth was dancing again and some others, older, conversing. Everybody smiling: who, 10 years ago, would have believed that this creative experiment where tribal farmers and artists from Europe, Asia, North and South America work together will continue bearing so tasty fruits?
