The plight of refugees and their constant state of movement and instability became the central theme of "1 Sq Ft", a contemporary dance act by Manipuri choreographer Surjit Nongmeikapam.
The 30-minute act enunciated the human cost of war and the displacement it caused worldwide.
Using the metaphor of his props -- bamboo for boundaries, oars for crossing water bodies and chairs for comfort and seats of power -- his act builds a powerful case for the reality of war and violence.
