Seventh Night of Theatre
The 7th edition of the Night of Theatre took place on 15th February 2014 at Trimukhi Cultural Centre. Artists from Paris, Bogotá, Kolkata, Mexico city and Borotalpada village presented outside the Centre theatre, dance and music performances as well as an experimental film. Two of these stage works were the result of a 12 days rehearsals process together with 15 villagers. Journalist Mohua Das reported the event for The Telegraph: "There was something magical about making one’s way through the backwoods with torchlights and settling down on the ground under the open skies, feeling the caress of a wintry breeze and watching performances in the dark — imaginative and untamed."

>> A little more than 350 people were sitting on the floor outside Trimukhi Cultural Centre to see the night program. 61 of them came by bus from Kolkata (India: 52, France: 7, Poland: 1, USA: 1) and around 300 were from Borotalpada village and the surrounding tribal area.
>> Singer-songwriter Neel Adhikari, who came to present the film for which he had done the music, described his experience: “After the long journey our sense of disorientation was pushed to the limit with the experimental theatre but it was great. The way they used the existing nightscape of the village with a couple of lights and props as the stage was amazingly innovative. And there was a constant effort to tickle the senses....”

+ THE PAST NIGHTS OF THEATRE
The Sixth Night of Theatre was held in West Bengal, India, on 9th February 2013, at the Cultural Centre that Trimukhi Platform has been building in the Santal village of Borotalpada. It involved theatre, dance, music, installation, photo exhibition and a video projection. Artists from India, Europe and Latin America were rehearsing together with painters, photographers, dancers, musicians and actors from the tribal area to prepare the 12 works to be shared in situ during the night long festival.
As a first activity in the Cultural Centre in construction, Trimukhi Platform in collaboration with Proyecto 3 (Mexico), MACE (India), CONACULTA (Mexico) and Teatro Ojo (Mexico) has organised on 25th February 2012 in the compound of the building in process the Fifth Night of Theatre: a night long program with stage works performed by groups composed with artists from different social worlds and geographic continents. It was a way to show that it is possible to bring up a project of high quality art creation among those who normally cannot access as spectators and as makers such a kind of professional platform.
Produced by the National Mexican Fund for Art and Culture and the National University of Mexico, organized by Proyecto 3, with the collaboration of Trimukhi Platform the Fourth Night of Theatre took place on 5th September 2009 in Teatro UNAM, Mexico City, from 7 pm to 7 am. It was the première of 4 stage works by Rubén Ortiz (Mexico), Jean-Frédéric Chevallier and Matthieu Mével (France, Italy, India), Víctor Viviescas (Colombia), Joseph Danan (France). Between each theatre play, a musical performance was proposed by Rogelio Sosa (Mexico).
