Through theatre we experience life in its absolute raw and dramatic form. From being able to perform live, with no scope of re-shoot, and your one shot at improvising along the way, theatre captures the essence of storytelling.
Music, Poetry & Street plays
We, as a dramatic team focused on the integrity of street plays, and performed them in its true form, to talk about socio-political issues, relevant in the time.
Not only were these 'Nukkad natak' performed in the streets to spread awareness, but were also presented at a nation level, in several competitions.
The most prominent plays being about
Alzhiemers named Bhool chuk maaf (Forgive & Forget), Lack of respect to millennials named Ehtram (Honor), Sex education named HKID (Half Knowledge is Dangerous)
Intense characters, national level winners & Stage plays
A Shakespearean trilogy portraying his three prominent works, 'Hamlet, Macbeth and Othello'. Handling multiple characters like Desdemona and music along side was the start of this journey.
Jati Hi Poocho Sadhu Ki
A play dedicated to the social outcasts, and their struggle and greed to find what they deserve, JHPSK aims at talking more than about this social divide. It talks about love, and how often times in India, caste dictates your choice of love, and also becomes a reason for you to part ways.
Poster is a play that talks about the struggles of those who are economically weaker than the masses, and the lack of voice they own. It talks about labor unions and the constant exploitation they face.
playing the role of a woman who was forced into prostitution helped me discover a new empathy for the survivors of sex trafficking and sex workers.
Utopia talks about how women suffer in all the fights of religious, political and social divide in a man's world. It asks a very simple question, ' If ever, we were to find a utopian world in terms of religious divide, would a woman still be able to find her rightful place?'
Playing the protagonist who because of a mans fragile ego and religious biases slowly looses everything there was for her made me realise of the privilege we live in. Bagging the 'Best Actor' award for this role honoured and humbled me.
