CONCEPT

In indian belief, Shiva (the goddess of dance, love and deconstruction) will come back to ruin the world and reconstruct it in a better manner. This will happen during Kally ages (dark ages) when people’s heart symbolically will turn to cemetery. No emotion and faith will exist by that time. In such a situation, Shiva will start dancing at a cemetery and while he is madly dancing, he s called SUDDHALAIYADI (a dancer on the ashes of cemeteries).  The performance is based on a fantasy story about this belief.
