A Woman’s mind is like a Black Box – unseen in darkness, perceived as void if not filled with content, a non entity for those who don’t recognize the depth and dimensionality. A woman’s mind is like a Black Box – the little device on an aircraft that people look for frantically only when the vehicle crash lands.
The state of mind is vastly different from the state of being. The mind throbbing with emotions and thoughts all recorded continually and in layers not totally in sync with the spoken truth. There is little effort to decode or understand the woman’s mind unless there is an absolute emergency.
A women’s mind is like a Black Box- That performance space in a performing arts centre that is totally flexible. The space that can be reconfigures at will and any event can be staged very easily lending itself to different perspectives.
A well researched lyrical script choreographed in Classical Bharatnatyam, it traces the birth of a young girl child who is named Jagriti by her radical mother. She is moulded and shaped by her cultural learnings and social conditioning and instinctive reactions as a growing woman and her mother re-shapes her at every stage into someone stronger. Eventually she matures into a confident and powerful person by her own inner wisdom.
