Pookh & Prakh

Premiere: 1999

From what initially seem to be miniature, fragmented episodes, a story is miraculously created like an intricate puzzle. Entirely silent, wordless performances conjure up the explosive conflict between a lonely man and a solitary woman. While they search the earth for love, they switch roles and flit through genres, adopt masks and manipulated puppets. In the end, the happy end never arrives, but the fascinating journey does bring some comfort.
