Zameen: a documentary pulls you into the heart of a remote Indian community fighting for its way of life. From our Documentary Program.

Zameen is a partnership between CuriousWorks, Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, Jehan Kanga, Leah Barclay and S. Shakthidharan. It is the first major outcome from The Dam(n) Project and part of CuriousWorks’ Documentary Program.

Zameen: a documentary pulls you into the heart of a remote Indian community fighting for its way of life.

In 2011 a group of artists from Australia and India journeyed deep into India’s Narmada Valley. They met and lived with communities that are gradually being submerged due to large scale dam development in their region. To date over 30 million people have been internally displaced, and the resulting Indigenous activist movement – the Narmada Bachao Andolan – has become one of the most successful and sophisticated in contemporary history.

Zameen: a documentary is the companion piece to a contemporary dance work of the same name. This work is currently touring to Sydney for its Parramasala festival.
The show is on at:
5pm Sunday 6th October
3pm Monday 7th October
You can book your tickets at riversideparramatta.com.au/show/zameen/ .

UPDATE: In response to questions about donating to the communities in the Narmada, unfortunately they do not accept international donations on principle (and due to legal complications). However you can donate to The Dam(n) Project for this purpose and we will reserve 100% of these funds for the community to use as they wish.

You can donate to the project securely through here: thedamnproject.com/archives/projects/zameen-a-documentary . You are welcome to specify what your donation goes to – whether it be the NBA movement, Jeevanshala education, grassroots community arts and education workshops with the communities, or further artistic outcomes to spread awareness. Please stipulate at least the “The Damn Project”, followed by further specifications, in your donation.
