Background to the project by Artistic Director Supriya Nagarajan
I was visiting a remote part of the South Indian countryside two years ago, the kind of place where villages have no electricity in the evening and everything goes dark. I was on my way back from a temple one evening and I walked past some paddy fields. It was planting season and the women were at work. Children played while infants slept in makeshift cradles tied on trees as slings.
