Travel/ Scout India 2016

In March 2016, crossing India from West to East by train, I traveled to West Bengal to collect environmental materials related to droughts, floods and water rise in the coastal regions of Bengal.

Production scout Teyyam

For 6 weeks in early 2016, Christian Germon and I traveled with a small crew to the jungles of North Kerala (Kannur region) to immerse ourselves in the Native Rituals of Teyyam. 

Over 40 hours of footage has been recorded in just 2 weeks.

To see a Teyyam ceremony is to believe it.

That is the only way to begin to approach, or at least attempt to imagine, the transcendent state that its players and participants are able to achieve. 

To merely read about Teyyam is to miss its true import. Words alone are woefully insufficient to bring such a vibrant and living ceremony to life.”
