ABOUT THE PLAY
AK Theatre would like to welcome you all to the world of ethnic folk arts with our performance. Our Karagam presentation (a traditional Tamil musical - combining singing, dancing and musical instruments), performed in December 2018 at Our Tampines Hub & September 2019 at Esplanade was well-received and a big success among the audience. We crafted an organic representation that celebrates the ancient art form of Karagam, a mesmerizing dance of focus, grace and balance as the artists skillfully balance a pot on the head as they dance to a pattern of synchrony and elegant movements.
Failure is a part of success and how successful personalities overcome the insults and disappointments is the theme of this show. Once we realise that failures are transient, we learn to take it in its stride. The message is shown through five different stories, each stressing on the never-give-up attitude of a successful personality.
The making of Karagam involves 5 steps – of crafting a pot from the metal, adding soil and clay to the pot, placing of sticks and twigs around it, keeping leaves all around the pot, and decorating it with flowers. Each of these steps are shown on stage and simultaneously involves the narration of a new inspirational story performed by the artists in the distinctive style of Karagam.
