SAMAADHI is a show in development that deals with trauma and colonisation. At its heart rests the Jallianwala Bagh massacre that took place on the 13th of April 1919 in Amristsar, Punjab during the British Raj in India. The piece examines both the psychological and social impacts that suffering, loss, duty, family and identity have on our life.
As a two-man production, SAMAADHI utilises poetry, physical theatre, dance, clowning and archive records to bridge historic strife to the questions of today.
