AdvertisementThe play explores the actors’ gendered bodies and their relationship with the self, others and public spaces—the piece uses objects, physical theatre and cartography to devise a thought-provoking experience.
These stories begin on a random day. These are first-hand retellings of day-to-day in Nizamuddin basti. The spectator is invited to enter the performer’s world through the everyday-ness of the narrative. The stories begin to twist into tales of how gender and sexuality play out in the lives of the four actors. Conversations about family, trust, consent, personal space and gender dynamics begin to surface. Their questions and confusions about their identity and how they are perceived within the boundaries of their home and their community, comes forth through their words and actions.
The play attempts to highlight the contrast between the confining yet comfortable quality of the home space and the liberating aspects of the outside world. The differences between ‘who I am’ and ‘how people see me’ guide the explorations that the performers embark on. The audience is invited to experience the happenings through a gender-sensitive lens.
