The new season of Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India, International Zone has started last night with amazing performance Embracing the Planet. We follow the story of misplaced San bushman who was denied for the birthright of using his mother tongue. Lost in his life journey gets across of a spirit, who becomes his guide on the path of reconnection to the thread of light. Performes supported by rich video imagery are along with the audience, totally immerse in the incredible sound which , either we want it or not, affects with its frequencies our bodies, minds, and completes the universal story … What have we done? …in the name of civilization and the progress? ….. what is one’s mission on this planet? ….
Excellent performance is a fruition of collaboration and work of many

The San bush people of the Africa desert believed we are each connected by a thread of light to the stars, nature and all life. Their wisdom says – when the thread is cute, we suffer, what they call “star sickness”. We are left disoriented , isolated and alone – breeding anger, fear, greed and separation… Can we find this lost thread of light? Can we connect once again, to our cosmic roots?
