"After Death" The spiritual Journey, Concept, Directed and Choreography by Vikram Mohan. This was held 13th August 2015 in New Delhi, India. About the concept :- “After Death” The Spiritual Journey
“After death is a contemporary dance theater project .This project is based on Indian Bhil tribe’s traditional rituals, faith in spiritual powers and folk stories inspired by their ancestral rituals. After travelling to Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, I have dealt with a concept based on these rituals, developed into a folk story inspired by the Bhil tribe rituals related to death. In my story one Bhil man meets with an accident, after which his mother, wife and friends pay their homage to Dungerdeo and perform rituals to save his life. But, after his death, his wife was engaged with another man. Due to this the soul of the first husband got disturbed which led to disturbance in villager’s life too. For his peaceful journey rituals of gatla (ancestor stele) erection were performed which is a traditional practice prevalent among the Bhil tribe of India”...Vikram Mohan
