Conceived and choreographed by Co-Artistic Directors Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, Written in Water is an exploration of the Indian board game Paramapadam – an early version of ‘Snakes and Ladders’ – and the 12th century Sufi poem The Conference of the Birds. Both the board game and the text reflect an intricate allegory of the way in which a universal paradigm – that of the seeker on a journey to overcome human failings and find ultimate truth – is experienced within these spiritual traditions.
Dancers activate the space by negotiating snakes and ladders—which represent the heights of ecstasy and depths of longing in Hindu and Sufi thought—to connect the human with the transcendent and reveal mysteries within the self.
