THEATRE SHOWS WITH RAJAT KAPOOR
Hamlet - The Crown Prince
Directed by Rajat Kapoor, the play where a bunch of clowns are putting up a show of Hamlet. They sometimes misinterpret the text, sometimes find new meanings in it, sometimes try and understand it, very often make a mess of it. They chose to use some phrases from the play and mixed it with gibberish. They even edited the text, threw out some important scenes and made a mess of the order of things as if the pages got mixed up. But through this all they were simply looking for the essence of Hamlet, and trying to find a context in our own times.
What's Done Is Done
A theatrical performance where once again the clowns draw us to the world of Macky B and his Lady. The righteous Macky B is a good man, brave soldier, loyal friend and and he would have been the same perhaps, if he didn't meet those three weird sisters that night! He would have been happier. Sometimes it is better to not know what is in store for us. Sometimes, all you need is a little push- to go to the other side.
Watch this play to have an amazing experience.
Dastan-e-Kabir was organised in Delhi in July 2016, at the Lotus Temple. The art of Dastangoi is a form of Urdu oral storytelling. Having lost traction in the early 20th century, it is being revived by a small band of performers led by Shamsur Rahman Faruqi and Mahmood Farooqui. Ankit Chadha was our dastango or storyteller for the evening, among the youngest and most talented proponents of the art. Mumbai-based band Kabir Cafe also performed, and their unique sound is definitely one to keep an ear out for. On a quest to ensure Kabir's work is accessible and comprehensible through contemporary music to the rest of the world, they perform his verses against tunes ranging from pop and rock to reggae and folk. The event was a major success with overwhelmingly positive feedback, and demand for passes was so high that we are initiating it for the second time in Delhi, as well as in other branches around the country.
We have conducted a musical concert with southern singing legend K.S Chitra in Hyderabad and Vishakhapatnam. Stalwarts like Abiram and S.P. Sailaja have also shared the stage at our event. The singers perform popular Telugu and Hindi songs at the show. The audience thoroughly enjoy the show and sing along their favourite numbers. Tie ups with radio channels and ticketing portals have led to packed audiences in each of our shows.
