Presented by the Kriyative Theatre, in collaboration with Serbian performer Kristian Al-Droubi, Where the Shadow Ends is a contemporary interpretation of an epic story. The narrative travels through myths and history that are common across cultures, and looks at how myths have turned into history and shaped the moral fabric of societies across the world. The play explores a South Asian epic story and finds similar stories that exist in Serbia and across cultures. It moves seamlessly between the personal and the political, whilst questioning notions of duty, belief, loyalty, patriotism and patriarchy. The play is in English and uses contemporary movement and text to explore the space between reality and shadows of the past. This experimental work is designed to shock, tease and tickle you into thinking.

The Kriyative Theatre Trust, established in 2005, is now a premier theatre group in Bangalore city. The group has performed around 600 shows of 19 plays across the country and around the world. Apart from staging plays in Kannada, the language of the region, this unique bilingual group has the distinction of introducing the non-Kannada audience to outstanding Kannada literary texts by adapting them for the stage and translating the adaptations into English as well. The uniqueness of the group is that almost all the plays produced by the Kriyative Theatre are original pieces, scripted by members of the group. The choice of plays is led by a desire to contribute their mite to the creation of a better world and to bring the best from all over the world to their audience. The Kriyative Theatre has been trying to create awareness among people of the role of theatre in tackling social issues like dowry, different forms of oppression of women and weaker sections of society, drawbacks in our educational system, corruption and so on. The group has been performing educative plays in schools and colleges and holding discussions on issues relating to theatre and the above subjects.

CEBEF prepares and organizes film, music and multimedia ambient festivals with a tradition spanning over decades.
