“Praatohkrityo” is a dance-theatre production that originates from the urban rituals lying beneath the surface of everyday life. The pre-designed structure of repeated actions, movements, behaviour, feelings, pushes us to look for newer signs, codes, and movements. These codes of movement have been determined by different overlapping systems of oppression such as patriarchy, fundamentalism, the State etc. It takes cue from urban ritual because our movements essentially emerge from life we live and that is our point of departure of this dance theatre. The work raises questions regarding the perfect body type expected of a dancer and dance belonging only to traditionally schooled dancers.
