Ramanaya is an attempt to explore the fundamental Indian myth, the Ramayana, but to do so with a playful wink. The performance finds an entry into the revered epic through a central sketched model, made of materials recycled from junk and debris. That landscape, a kind of mind map, will be used as a playground—a place to discuss the infinitive scenarios that unfold in the Ramayana.
Two storytellers find an entry into this map, and get carried away by the force of what unfolds.
Slowly the map expands, grows more complex,taking the two storytellers deeper into the stream of mythology. As their journey takes them into the stream, they find new perspectives in its surreal world, and the epic reveals itself to them in new and unexpected ways. The spectator is invited to join the performers on their journey, and discover this world with them. And perhaps even find their own answers to the questions they are confronted with.
