The concept of Ekonama is based on the future of the human race- a tragedy that may happen to them in the near future. With massive deforestation taking place all over the world, pollution levels rising, what will happen to us when there would be no trees to give us shade or oxygen to breathe? What will be live on and live for? Many of us think about the aliens invading the Earth and destroying it. But what if the disease is spreading from within? With this dance drama, Sapphire Creations aims to make the people think twice before destroying Nature. What a world will one leave behind for their children devoid of Nature or peace?
