Thuyar Maruppom evolved as a play that recalls, reflects and represents the years of war that have gone by, with our eyes on future possibilities and dreams. The play is performed by ten actors – young women from the communities of Batticaloa, Eastern Sri Lanka. Real life stories were collected and woven into a collage. The narrators, however, are not human beings, but materials that have been a witness. How much more ‘objective’ can we get? The choric narration becomes our collective voice as Suriya – somewhere that has become a space for sharing horrible experiences of untold violence, and small joys of collectivism.
