Film & Theater

Talki - Fri, 15th Sep'23

Talki is a play that brings together trans women from various walks of life - activists, writers, mothers, community leaders - with one thing in common: the scars on their bodies that age and life have given them. These scars seem to scratch out a map of the streets of Bengaluru, but in their midst also lie the little pieces that gave them the will to live, the hope to fight another day: their dreams. This play is an attempt to weave those dreams, often unfulfilled, little moments of Truth, interwoven in a fabric of fantasies, laughter, tears, contempt, ridicule, self-respect, and self-belief. Like a child who listens to stories her grandmother tells, wisdom cloaked in love, we invite you, the people of Bengaluru, to listen in on these dreams, and relate them to your lives, your hopes, your dreams.

Endings - Bangalore International Centre

Shraddha Mattu Stainless Steel Patregalu - Sun, 17th Sep'23

Two plays with a common theme, a child's perception of their parents during their growing up years, narrated on the days of the respective parent's death anniversary.
"Shradhdha," based on a short story by Srinivasa Vaidya, explores the relationship between the son and his disciplinarian and autocratic father. "Stainless Steel PaathregaLu," based on Vasudhendra's story with the same name, explores the mother's obsession with stainless steel utensils, as seen through the eyes of her son.

The Middle Class Gentleman - Sun, 17th Sep'23

From a bird’s point of view, The Middle Class Gentleman belongs to the present times as much as it did to the French people of the 17th century. Like Charlie Chaplin’s films, Moliere’s plays have the capacity and strength to hold the interests of people of any age, creed and strata. The Bourgeois Gentleman, the original French play, still holds relevance to the likes of the current Indian scenario. The Indian majority, influenced by westernization, is trying hard to be the modern gentleman by following the corporate rules and regulations; unlearning common sense; learning snobby aristocracy and forgetting everything else that is important just like a fool. This is gently summarized in ‘The Middle Class Gentleman’ according to our cultural and societal situations. The play gently satirizes the pretensions of the social climber whose affectations are absurd to everyone but himself. Here, there is criticism of both the pretentiousness of the middle class in wanting to be aristocratic and the snobbery of the aristocracy in holding to their own status.

Lokada oLahorage - Tue, 19th Sep'23

This play is a direct discussion of the questions Tagore himself had about Western culture and the revolts against it in early 1910's. As a symbol of both these thoughts, the two main characters of this play, Siddhartha as an admirer of Western thought, and Indrajit as an opponent of that culture, the ups and downs of an innocent girl named Sharade, who is caught between them, is the core of this play. The conflicts of these two thoughts that enter into the family, where everything seemed to be romantic, are revealed through the play and how they break up not only that family but also the surrounding society becomes the core issue. This play tries to convey that only inclusive minds can build a healthy society.
