I’m Going to Bury the Moon!

Even on the hottest days, she can’t drink a drop of water,
and she resents the moon shining above even on the deepest nights.
What happened to poor Latika?

We are storytellers, and we want to show and tell you a fun story. Today, we will meet a girl named Latika, who lives in India. Keep up because, with a swoosh, we become the moon and, with a woosh, a bucket of water in a different scene. After all, when telling a story, why not go all out? Prick up your ears, and let your eyes shine as we take a trip into this story together. Here we go!
In a village deep within India, there lives a girl named Latika. No matter how thirsty she is, Latika refuses to drink water because it will make her want to go to the toilet.
I’m Going to Bury the Moon! is her story.
Four storytellers and three musicians tell her tale, sometimes with words and movements and, other times, with dance and music like those in the Indian subcontinent!

If the original story by Andrée Poulin’s picture book Burying the Moon focused on the story of women suffering from a lack of toilets in developing areas, the play I’m Going to Bury the Moon! spotlights Latika’s journey as she breaks the silence imposed upon her and talks about and makes her own decisions on her needs. Are you ready to hear Latika’s story? Then, let’s go and meet her now!
Latika lives in a small village in India. Her village has no toilet. The village women wait until nightfall to take care of their business in the field after dark.

Tonight, Latika goes to the dark field by herself. The moon begins to rise, round and bright. Is the moon unaware of Latika’s activities? The moonlight illuminates the world without heeding what she is doing. Latika wants to bury the Moon. Or rather, she wants to make “that place.”

She grabs a pickax. Is she really trying to bury the moon? Or is she trying to build “that place”?
