Black Hole | The Hindu Theatre Fest
Amongst cosmological objects, black holes - regions in space, time where the gravitational force is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape - have a special place, evoking a sense of mystery and awe for physicists and ordinary people alike. A woman, a single white sheet and the cosmos - these are the three elements that comprise this work.
An ordinary person begins to explore ideas from theoretical physics, delving into theories of space and time in an attempt to find a greater engagement with the universe and with herself
The notion of 'singularities' forms a running theme through the piece: both the singularity of our experience of the self - entirely contained and accessible to oneself alone - and the singularity inside a black hole, a point where space and time fold in on themselves and disappear.
In terms of the performance language, Black Hole moves between real and mundane, the scientific, and the dream-like - images, sounds and text forming a fabric of space time that explores the outer cosmos and the inner cosmos
