Saudagar (Merchant of Venice)

(Hindi/95mins)

Writ. & Dir. Atul Satya
Kaushik. Saudagar is an Indian adaptation of one of the most famous plays of William Shakespeare – Merchant of Venice. This adaptation is peculiar for recreating quintessential Shakespearian moods on stage in an Indian set up. A merchant lends three thousand ducats to his friend in order to assist him in wooing a wealthy and beautiful princess of a princely state in pre-independent India. But the merchant's own money is tied up in some risky business ventures, so he borrows some from a moneylender whom he has previously insulted for his religion and high rates of interest. The lender loans him the money against a bond whereby failure to repay the loan on the agreed date will entitle him to a pound of the merchant's flesh. Princess's father has decreed that she will marry whichever suitor makes the correct choice when presented with three caskets, made of gold, silver and lead. The story unfolds in an interesting manner thereafter.
For tickets at Rs.350, contact 9873579796 & 9873033405.
Suitable for 15 years & above.

Bali - The Sacrifice

(Hindi/60mins)

 

Prod. Actor Factor Theatre Company Writ. Girish Karnad Desg. & Dir. Aditee Biswas. Drawing from an ancient Kannada epic, Girish Karnad's Bali examines the complexity of the man-woman relationship, within and outside marriage. While looking at it through the lenses of caste and creed, it juxtaposes these relationships with the struggle between two religions. Based on the system of 'View-Points' as proposed by Anne Bogart and Tina Landau, our staging of Bali uses the grammar of movement and physical theatre, trying to capture the psychological and emotional spaces of its characters. It is an attempt to interrogate what the term 'bali' means to us today. How violence in its many forms has become part of our day to day life. Isn't the act of sacrifice, an act of violence? Thus, by comparing and contrasting, the play questions why such acts of violence find validation in the name of religion, tradition and culture.
Tickets at Rs.350, Rs.300 & Rs.250 available at the venue.
Suitable for 12 years & above.

Bade Bhai Sahab

(Hindi/45mins)

Prod. Kshitij Writ. Munshi Premchand Dir. Bharti Sharma. Bade Bhai Saheb is one such play that tells the story of the relationship between two brothers -- Kamta Prasad (age 17) and Samta Prasad (age 12). Both live away from home in a hostel to study. Kamta, the elder brother, spends all his time reading. Such is his passion to understand each and every word written in the book that sometimes he stays in one class a couple of times just to grasp the meaning of what is written. Samta, the younger brother, is just the opposite of Kamta. He is more interested in playing with friends than in studying. But he is terrified of his elder brother and to please him starts studying the minute he sees him

Beemar

(Hindi/45mins)

Prod. Kshitij Writ. Sahadat Hasan Manto Dir. Bharti Sharma. In this play, Kumar is not feeling well even after taking the medicines prescribed by the doctor.

Despite suffering from cough, he is suggested to eat sour things like tamarind etc. reason being, 'diamond cuts diamond'. He is made to consume rotten vegetables and a lot of weird items.

Chaand Kisi Ka Kab Hota Hai

(Hindustani/140mins)

Dir. Rajesh Tiwari Prod. The Ramo Visions & IPTA, Delhi State. The play, on the whole, clearly creates a picture that humans, to live their lives do not require political boundaries, religion or military security. What actually is needed, is, a dignified soul flexibly ready to harmonize and create a sentiment strong enough to help create the emotion of love, i.e., the essential most part of life. Having said that, we must also realize the situation today which is nothing but a strong notion of division through barriers like religion, caste, gender, creed etc.
Tickets at Rs.350, Rs.250 & Rs.150 available at the venue.
Suitable for 12 years & above.

Project Antigone

(Eng/Hindi)

Dir. Kuljeet Singh. Antigone is a Greek tragedy by Sophocles written in or before 441 BC. Creon, the new ruler of Thebes, has decided that Eteocles the rebel brother's body will be honored and Polynices will be made prey for animals in public shame. The unsanctified, unburied body on the battlefield was the harshest punishment at the time. Antigone wants to bury Polynices' body, in defiance of Creon's edict. Ismene, her sister refuses to help her, fearing the death penalty, but she is unable to stop Antigone from going to bury her brother. Antigone, compared to her beautiful and docile sister, is portrayed as the rebel of her family who seems withdrawn and refuses to play by the rules. The beginning of the play suggests Antigone's rebellious side, the fact that Ismene seems terrified to disobey Creon for fear of his death penalty, while Antigone tells her that Creon does not frighten her. In Project Antigone, Antigone is a metaphor of defiance. The play discusses the age-old ideas of fate, justice and truth and the project endeavors to locate “Antigone” in the contemporary system.
Tickets at Rs.200 & Rs.100 available at the venue.
Suitable for 15 years & above.
