* Remark by Kirtana:“In Hindi „adda“ refers to a gathering, a meeting, a confluence where people can converse and converse some more. The etymology of „adda“ can be traced to a place where birds can perch. Bringing to mind Farid ud-Din Attar’s Conference of the Birds. Theatre communities always have „adda“ in India, to discuss, disagree, challenge…to talk! „

* Remark by Axel: „A popular folktale tells of a visitor to a village who notices that the villagers seldom do anything together. On his travels he has picked up an unusual looking small pebble. He points to this “magic” stone and invites everyone to share in a magical meal prepared with the power of this stone. But each one would need to bring something to add to the soup. So all the villagers arrive with carrots, tomatoes, beans and so forth, and soon there is a delicious soup which they all enjoy together. They are delighted at coming back together and sharing and realize the magic of community is not in the stone.“

Kirtana Kumar is a theatre director and actress from Bangalore and she is currently artist in residence as a guest of the state capital Munich in the Villa Waldberta. She is part of the Festival Teamtheater.Global and presents new contemporary theatre works from the Indian state of Karnataka.
