In the play ‘The arrival of devastation’ we meet Bansi who is a tuneless minstrel, Durga a passionate potter, Mahapatra is a failed healer and Vishnu a dumb and devastated poet. Each of them are voices, opening themselves and inviting you into their memories. Fate has brought them together to a remote and forgotten temple. The temple infuses new life into them. They have accepted their destiny and hold no grudge. Until one day a crippled Langda from the city comes to their village.

The sacred place means to feel at home, to belong to, it is also a location and so our 
play deals with issues of place, location and sacredness that gathers people as well as disappearing traditions, crafts and also ‘Location' that disrupts dislodges and scatter prior ‘Unities'.
