Bali - The Sacrifice archiveIn the heat of a dark midnight, in a ruined temple, a song floats through the air. The voice belongs to a Mahout - an elephant keeper - and it is so beautiful that it draws the Queen from her bed. The Kings feels her leave his side and silently follows. What he finds in the temple makes his blood run cold. The impulse to commit violence to resolve a situation and assuage feelings of betrayal and anger collides head on with the belief that a life of non-violence is the only one worthy to be lived. Bali - The Sacrifice is inspired by Somadeva Suri's Jain epic and this ancient myth shouts to us down 11 centuries with enormous resonance for our world today.
