Cast :  Terence Lewis and David Zambrano


THE KAMSHET PROJECT is a hard-hitting piece of dance theatre, that explores the darker side of human nature. The production has an unusual and provacative genesis: the members of PAARA, the artistic unit of the Terence Lewis Contemporary Dance Company (TLCDC) were taken on a week’s residency excursion to a sylvan location, just outside the overcrowded metropolis of Mumbai. There they were placed under virtual house arrest and separated from all social distractions and technological devices. They spent their days workshopping with practitioners from varied and esoteric disciplines - a Mandala artist, a psychic tarot reader, a hypnotist and a counsellor. The dancers delved deep in their own psyches, examining and pulling apart their very DNA. The result was an explosion of primeval energy. With their freedom taken away, the dancers made themselves vulnerable to the cellular memories of their past: hidden desires, suppressed feelings and old wounds surfaced; animalistic and tribal instincts were unleashed. At the start of the show, the audience is induced into a semi-hypnotic state, allowing them to tap into their own suppressed alteregos. The performance then progresses in a hurricane arc of conflict, confessions and finally resolution. Interweaving the company’s trade-mark Indo-Contemporary style with spoken word, THE KAMSHET PROJECT is a raw and dramatic production that has been devised by the company.
