ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
“6 Feet” land and us, is a Bharatanatyam production which will explore the relationship that humans
share with land. It is very interesting how a unidirectionally dependent relationship has created a
network of links that are highly metaphorical and parasitic. Yet land has taken all this and much more,
continuing to rejuvenate and provide, but for how long? How do we as humans strike a balance
between development and sustainability?
