A red oleander is very toxic as its flower language suggests: carefulness,’ ‘caution’ and ‘warning.’ The author of the original text Tagore was inspired by a red flower growing in a heap of the abandoned steel and wrote a work depicting the strong image of the flower reminding us of both ‘death’ and ‘beauty.’
The performance describes miners deprived of humanity inside the system of modern civilization and their death paradoxically caused by their longing for freedom from the social safety net.
A city of darkness where people are called by their numbers instead of their names... To survive they have to keep mining gold in the dark mine.
In this city, people live lives that are repeated meaninglessly. They have neither hope nor expectations for a new life. They are not even allowed to recollect the beautiful days in the past or to feel sad about missing their hometown. It is rather painful to dream of a life shining with joyful life so they just go into the net they made by themselves and hide in there.
One day, a ray of light comes into this dark city. It is Nandini covering herself with red oleanders. She reminds this hopeless city of the forgotten beautifulness. She spreads the hope that she will awaken the heart of the city where Lorn John is asleep in order to lead everyone to a bright light. The rumor about Lorn John shakes everyone and their wish for changes causes a crack in the firmly established governance of the city.
