Majuli, a stunning and picturesque island in Assam’s mighty Brahmaputra river,
is also the world’s biggest river island. This performance attempts to tell the tale
of Majuli through an intense and evocative narrative of movement, dance and
theatre. Inspired by the mystique of the Brahmaputra, the landscape of Majuli
and the social, cultural and spiritual life of its people, it weaves together a story
of the intricate bond between people and their land.
Set to music created by instruments played by the Assamese, the Deori and the Mising communities
of Majuli, the performer meanders in the rhythm of a river. This mesmeric solo is a celebration of the spirit of Majuli which stands peaceful and resilient in a land still torn by strife and conflict
