Labyrinth

The form of the labyrinth dates back to the twelfth-century Holiswara dynasty of India, staging the ‘will conundrum’ of the Chakravyuh in the Mahabharata. The great hero Abhimanyu is gifted with magical powers to fight through the Chakravyuh labyrinth and confront the powers of evil. Although he is gifted to fight to the heart of the labyrinth, he has not been gifted to find his way out and at last ends up betrayed. In the labyrinth we hear the echo of slavery brought up close within poignant loops of plantation chants, sounds of machetes cutting sugar cane, the rustle of tobacco and hands picking cotton.
