Milk White Ocean is a Hindu creation myth. Beeja collaborated with the Wonderful Beast Theatre Company to create the work, which was first presented in the Nehru Gallery at the V&A. The work was subsequently re-chreographed and performed in venues across London and a dries of shows in the main hall of the Natural History Museum.
Deepam combines bharatanatyam with spoken text and poetry. It depicts some of the main episodes from the Ramayana: birth of Rama and his brothers; his exile from Kosala; attempted seduction of Rama and Lakshmana by the demoness Surpnakha, which results in her losing her nose; abduction of Sita by Ravana, Surpnakha’s brother, who wants revenge; Rama’s alliance with money king Sugriva and his general Hanuman who flies to Lanka to find Sita; the killing of Ravana and Rama’s triumphant return to Ayodhya.
Deepam was first performed at Wimbledon theatre and toured Devon.
