CRA’P Presentations 2022

Sunday 11 December from 16h to 20h
CRA’P Space

Respirar el Mahabharata is the vow to narrate during twelve years the Mahabharata, the longest known tale. Since the first year, the aim of the process has been to inquire into the experience of oral storytelling, its possibilities, and the meaning of narrating the Mahabharata, today, in Spanish.

This seventh year we will go back to the roots of the project, and I will narrate the Mahabharata from beginning to end, with special mention to Krishna and the Bhagavad Gita. The pace will be gentle, there will be time for rest, a meditation and a debating circle. This is the year with the least artifice of the seven, everything will be reduced to narration and presence. To human encounter. I hope you can come.

Normally we launch each new chapter the 12th of December, but this year we have decided to host a storytelling meeting on Sunday 11 of December, from 16.00 to 20.00 approximately, which will lead to a ritual closing that each of the participants will do at some point on Monday 12th of December.

Michael Gadish have studied Hebrew philology BA in the University of Amsterdam and a certification program in sanskrit language and culture with Elena Sierra in the University of Barcelona. He collaborates as a writer in theater and contemporary dance projects since 2004. The search of the origins of language and the meeting between philosophy, art and the traditional with the contemporary has brought him to focus on story telling as a tool, combined with new scenic languages close to the performance arts as well as specializing in the roots of Indian traditional storrytelling: the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Purana, out of the feeling that they are an unending spring of wisdom and creativity. He collaborates with yoga training courses and organizes talks and workshops about Indian cosmogony which combines creativity with education. Since 2016 he is leading a 12 years performance based on the Mahabharata, where he commits to study during 12 years this great work and premiere each 12th of the 12th a new show based on a part of this story. Each 15 days he publishes a writing on the state of the process in the blog:
