home > menu > night of theatre > night of theatre n°12

 


NIGHT OF THEATRE n°12, the twelfth edition of an unusual night-long festival of contemporary (i.e. which work to ensure that combinations of differences produce aesthetic consistencies), performing (i.e. which operate here and now), and collaborative (i.e. which call upon the involvement of each and every one) arts will take place on Saturday March 7, 2020 in the tribal village of Borotalpada (West Bengal, India). The journey starts from Kolkata at noon on Saturday. Back the next day early morning. On the programme: a dance and music show, a dance-theatre-video performance in two different locations at the edge of the village, a shorter experimental theatre piece, two installations, a few happenings with action painting and unexpected poetry, a couple of sound interventions, one philosophical conversation, a midnight dinner and —to conclude all that even more joyfully— a multicultural dance party. [The programme may be subject to change without prior notice.] At the helm of this crazy thing: the entire Trimukhi Platform creative team, a bunch of guests, all renown artists, thinkers and directors of Arts Centres from Europe and Latin America anxious to put in question their practice, as well as 18 families from the village of Borotalpada, quite very used to prepare for such a unique event.

THE ON-GOING PREPARATIVES FOR THE NIGHT 2020

 

In November 2019, with the support of Mondriaan Fund, Trimukhi Platform invited Ruchama Noorda (The Netherlands) to share with the Santhal team one of her strategy to put on an art installation. During one week, Budhray Besra, Dhananjoy Hansda, Joba Hansda, Ramjit Hansda, Salkhan Hansda, Sukul Hansda and Surojomoni Hansda worked together with Ruchama. They used paddy straw, clay, water and young bamboo branches, as well as a video projector and two speakers. The aim of this workshop was to open up the field of possibilities for the installation Still and All Remaining Alive, which will be inaugurated during the Night of Theatre n°12.
