here I am experimenting with dance
and movement to some Lankan drama songs. I really
love the rain. As a little kid I remember wanting
to bathe in the rain and did. In this piece dancing
in the rain is a symbol "kumata the sobaniye kandulu salaney"
-why do you cry-
rain then is the symbol of tears and cleansing.
