shadow-puppetry tribal opera (2017)

Experimental chamber shadow puppetry tribal opera inspired by the myths and folk music of Bonda, Dongria, Gadaba, Lanjia Saora and Paroja tribes living in Orissa (Urisha), East India. Tribal stories and tunes were collected during my travels in India, where I tried to record, learn and collect folk music and mythology.

The piece was staged at Divadlo na Orlí in Brno 25/2/2017.
