In political geography, an imaginary line between two nations, seperating the imaginary rights of one from the imaginary rights of the other -Ambrose Bierce

In a fragmented landscape Hamlet searches.....post-cold war Hamlet, post-Nandigram Hamlet, post-Gundewar commission Hamlet...post-Naroda Patiya Hamlet
In a celebrated production of Best of Kolkata Campus-Heiner Muller's slim text undegoes a geographical shift and vacillates between
movements, activist aspiration and dangerous dreams....
A series of photographs. With hands' and legs' as a metaphor. Let's cut to the starting point.
The start of this project was that brilliant line of Muller
I am not Hamlet. This is not my play anymore....

"The violence of waking life disrupts the order of our death. Strange dreams occur, for dreams are licensed as they never were." - Louis Simpson
