Bhu – Earth

Bhu offers an interactive performance combining theater, dance, traditional and contemporary music, the ancient Tamill Nadu practice of Kararipattu and video mapping.

The process is led by Philippe Pelen Baldini and Thierry Moucazambo, and guided by one of the greatest masters of Kalaripayattu: Sri Guru Lakshman Gurukkal, and warrior dancer, Nikhil Varagiri.

The performances took place in a real Kalaripit, a sacred space that represents the womb of Mother Earth. The Kalaripit consists entirely of compact earth, from which the warriors draw their energy.
