Theatre: Adishakti presents ‘Bhoomi’ – 10 April

Adishakti announces the opening of “Remembering Veenapani Festival” on the 10th of April.

As part of this year’s festival curation, one play will be showcased every month. This month, we showcase our own play ‘Bhoomi’.

Due to the covid – 19 restrictions the seats are limited  but do keep us in your mind on the 10th.

BHOOMI

Adapted by Vinay Kumar from Sara Joseph’s Malayalam play ” Bhoomirakshasam”
  • Bhoomi sees an attempted conversation between polar worlds or rather very different positions. The play sees two artists, a director and her actor, located very differently in their personal journeys engaging with questions around gender, violence on gendered bodies, retribution and resolution.
  • Their dissonances- resonances with each other and independent trajectories is what the play looks at. What happens when the creative premise you are working on breaks out of the realm of art and play and stares you in the face as your reality. What do you do when your art starts speaking back to you, taking on a life of its own and stumping you with questions you are not equipped to respond to? When a resolution seems impossible,even as the situation seems to be demanding it with a sense of urgency?
    How do you really respond to a severe absence of answers?
  • This play contains content that can be upsetting or triggering. Viewers discretion is advised. 
    Due to Covid -19 regulations, limited seating and mask compulsory. 
    Entry by registration only.
