Karma, the Game of Life
Indian classical dance
Music composer: István Lerch
Props: István Oldal
Costumes, sets: Etelka Csekő
Directed and choreographed by: Panni Somi
The framework of the ballet is a paréour game of Indian origins, which teaches LIFE itself in compliance with traditions.It cannot be played by just anyone, only those that the master of ceremonies consider suitable. The game cannot be given up, cannot be half-played or taken lightly.
The game is not fair, not predictable: sometimes it is fun, sometimes annoying and baffling but always exciting and thought provoking. Each PLAYER reaches the finishing line providing he realises that the real goal is the game itself. It depends on the decisions of individuals as to what kind of experience they will have in the game. However it should be noted that the game itself is a living being. It makes decisions, has feelings, can be influenced and often, indeed, is unpredictable.
