Dafne was created in 2014 in Chennai in collaboration with Sahrdaya Foundation and the Banyan, an NGO that provides care to homeless women with psychological problems. Through the myth of ‘Dafne,’ a woman who turns herself into a tree after being chased by the god Apollo, the experiences of the residents of the Banyan were shaped in a poetic way. By comparing this European myth to Indian stories and rituals, a rich exchange developed between dancers, singers and the residents. The project was part of a larger project; with theatre-trainings by Miranda Lakerveld for the 200 residents of the Banyan and knowledge exchanges between artists, therapists, students and nurses.
