'mother earth' was a dance-project with the 70 'bandhavi'-girls of visthar (a secular, non-profit organization, committed to enabling women, children and other marginalized sections realize their rights. www.visthar.org). the performance of 'mother earth' was part of the celebration of international women's day at visthar, march 8th.
'once upon a time, a long long time ago the four children of mother earth, fire, earth, water and air met in a beautiful garden. After sunset they lit a bonfire, set around and started to tell each other stories.
fire said: after a long day of hard work when it´s getting cooler, people use to sit around me and celebrate and sing and dance.
seeing the dancing shadows of the flames on the floor, earth thought of all the wild animals, living in the djungels, grasslands and fields.
water felt that it had to share a lot and told three stories of heavy rainfall, blossoming fields and the big ocean.
hearing the rush of the ocean, fire, earth and water fell asleep. air was a bit disappointed, that they all would have fallen asleep before hearing air´s story. but then it decided to sent them a beautiful dream of flying.
in their dreams, flying up in the sky they all could see the beauty of the whole planet. they could see firing mountains, animals and nature and the big oceans living together in harmony and they felt the equal importance of each of them.'
