, a picturesque island in Assam’s mighty Brahmaputra river, is also the world’s biggest river island. This performance tells Majuli’s tale and that of its people through an intense and evocative solo of dance and theatre.

Inspired by the mystique of the Brahmaputra, it weaves together a story of the intricate bond between people and their land, set to music by instruments indigenous to the region. As the performer meanders in the rhythm of a river expressing pleasure, pain, love, and spiritualism, the motif of the boat dominates.

The mesmeric narrative is a celebration of Majuli’s spirit.
