Gaia-Mother Earth

Choreography: Ileana Citaristi
Music: Shanthanu Mohapatra
Date of composition: 2013

This Odissi-Chhau production is based on a folk tale meant to inspire love and respect towards mother Earth and exhorts men not to destroy the natural environment. The Moon wanders why the trees and vegetation which she is nurturing with love and affection are not bearing any fruit? Men are seen altering the natural course of rivers, plundering the womb of mountains, mining rocks, cutting trees, causing death and destruction to animals and vegetation. The Moon exhorts men to rectify their deeds; only by reconciling with Nature and by considering Earth as their own Mother they will be able to live a happy life.
