Bends and Flows

‘Bends and Flows’ works through the metaphors of the bend of a road and the flow of a river to show how everything we see, feel, or think is always in transformation and the potential of a material to become something else is always inherent in its being. This play takes our young audiences and adults alike on a sensorial world of shapes, sounds, rhythms and movements through the play of Kala Channa (Bengal Gram/Black Chickpea) on stage. 35 kilos of Kala Channa construct a road for us to walk on which transforms itself into a river for us to fish and boat in and mourn the death of when a bridge comes along. Emphasising the visual and aural, this play is an invitation for us to realise how the immanence of life is meant to be lived and savoured.
