Sita Mujer Tierra
Year of establishment: 2008
In Colombia: “ Sexual violence against indigenous women as a war strategy”
“SITA MUJER TIERRA”, Creation in World Rhythms and Traditions Scholarship (2007) “we want to expose the mythic relation of “Sita” with the most outstanding moments of the myth EL RAMAYANA in analogy with the possession of the land in the present of farmers and indigenous and the eternal conflict for land reclamation. The hero “Rama” represents these men waging an epic battle to recover their lands, their beloved woman. “Sita”, wife of “Rama” is kidnapped by the demon “Ravana”. This character represents those multinational companies which explode the sacred lands of our indigenous people, by harvesting transgenic seeds and finishing the natural resources of many Colombian ethnic groups deeply rooted with territories currently in conflict due to mining and oil. The play is composed by 4 moments: Born, Hymenaeus, Abduction and Rescue. The music is a selection of Western sounds."
