CRA’P Presentations 2023

Saturday, 20 May at 19:00 at CRA’P space

We remember the master Veerasree Sami Gurukkal, who dedicated his life to the transmission of Kalarippayattu that we do at CRA’P.

A great opportunity to discover kalarippayattu. There will be demonstrations by kalari practitioners, and the screening of the documentary The aim is to get moksha. Tradition and modernity in the practice of Kalarippayattu in Kerala, India by the ‘RinconesRecorridos’ collective, which shows the daily life of Sami Gurukkal’s family and the spay Hindustan Kalari Sangam. There will also be a ritual dance performance with Laurence Morlon, and a dance theatre performance of ‘Topeng’, with traditional Balinese masks, by Toni Cots.

The Kalarippayattu of Kerala (India) is one of the most ancient martial art forms in the world. Through its very scientific physical discipline, it opens up the practitioner energy channels and pushes the boundaries of the body to become strong, flexible and focused – physically, mentally and spiritually; the reason why both theatre and dance artists and anyone interested practice it as a daily discipline. No physical condition or previous experience is necessary to practice.

Reverse box office.
