PERFORMANCES AT THE HOLY CENTRE 
INDIA AND KASHMIR
The two characters in this episode move through the lanes of an imaginary, oneiric city, encountering visions and memories of excess and absence, loss and overflow, surrender and hope. In the quest for their personal definition of what is the holy centre, they confront themselves with the prosaic realities of India. It is as if there was neither inside nor outside, but textures and edges. Their acts are centrifugal, remembrances splint all over the ground, waiting to be picked up after having traveled so far. The characters circulate and watch at themselves as strangers who are drawn to stop by, in the process of adding their stories to others. Unrevealing and revealing is accretive. Meanings, signs, which are layered over ruins and the history dust, are peeled off one by one to be connected and set forth in a map of fragmented time.
