A series of conversations unfold on one night, in a dimension where time is myth or non-linear. On this night, two particles floating in space discuss the limitedness that obstructs scientific perception of basic existential questions. This dialogue unfolds how binary thought processes make it nearly impossible to accept and embrace any concept that cannot be bound by binary walls. Gender, love, spirituality all are discussed with passion and a heart by the four characters that travel between time, in search of understanding and meaning. Looking at the masculine-feminine, love-hate, God – human binaries with a prism of perspectives which eventually unfolds new understandings and brings forth new questions.
Particle or quantum physics have opened new doors for understanding the mechanics of creation. The deeper the research, the more ambiguous its findings. The most basic understanding though, is that to decode and understanding huge concepts, one has to break it down and understand all the smallest of particles that makes it big. The characters talk about their personal journeys and unearth the minute emotions in them that have quantified into the identity that they have today embraced. Through their stories, they accept themselves for who they are and do not feel the need to box themselves in labels and eventually learn to let themselves free and be multiple things or entities at once.
Delve into the worlds of Krishna, Mo, Draupadi and Shikhandi as they reach out to each one of you through their stories of pain. Love, joy, search of identity, gender and finding meaning.
Chaos theory believes that a small butterfly that flutters in your garden could cause a huge hurricane somewhere else in the universe. We hope that these fluttering conversations too stir up a cyclone in all of us and open up new avenues for dialogue.
