If Each Day I Love You More One Day Will You Explode? is a sound installation conceived by Sukla Bar Chevallier and by Jean-Frédéric Chevallier in collaboration with Chandrai Murmu and with 4 series of sounds combinations designed by Jean-Frédéric Chevallier. Four separate sources of sound are placed around the spectators while they are greeted by young women from Borotalpada village. According to the Santhal tradition, the villager girls wash the feet of their guests and then coat them with oil. First experimented during a dry rehearsal in 2016, the device was taken over in 2017 for Night of Theatre n°10 • Night of Ideas.
