First performance: August 18. 2016, Zebegény
India and Hungary meet in the figure of a world-famous painter Amrita Sher-Gil. She is of Hungarian descent through her mother and of Indian descent through her father. In the 1930s, she spent a lot of time in the mountains of Zebegény (a Hungarian village), where she discovered the landscape’s beauty and hers as well. This experience inspired several marvelous paintings.
Her early death at the age of 28 didn’t leave her oeuvre unfinished but gave proof that you got to live every moment to the fullest if fate offers you a short and intense life.
Useful time becomes sacred in the mirror of love. The myth that makes this village a sacred place also feeds on the power of love and the creative energy manifested in art. The performance is a captured moment not only of Amrita’s passing earthly being but also of the Baltazar Theater’s trip to India in 2015.
