David Scott – One Night Only

I have just sat listening to a most engaging, informal, funny, observant, David Scott talk us through a mosaic of his brushes with life, living, family, experiences for 100 minutes. It flashed past in a trice.
What we need to applaud, not only here in Bangalore, India but around the world, is how a performer in his first time on stage, indeed,  his maiden performance to a ticket-paying audience had them transfixed and gently wafted them from an OBGYN OT to a fish and chip shop in Glasgow, to a Cisco campus and through the vicissitudes of this mandated journey that we all take.
One must note his candour, his honesty and, indeed, his courage and that of his family Claudia, son, Callum and Daughter Matilda all regular visitors to Jagriti seated in the audience, to bare it all with a quiet, no fanfare retelling of what has been noteworthy in David’s life, especially the last eight years spent in India. That he did this at Jagriti is feather in our cap. He must do it again and he will, I am sure.

30 of 30: Alipha April 2018 . Written by Poile Sengupta Directed by Arundhati Raja . Through a backdrop of a multitude of human emotions, two parallel stories evolve. Two lives. Two people who pass each other like ships in the night. We watch a young girl grow into adulthood as the stories unfold and begin to mesh together like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. . Alipha tells the parallel stories of a social activist and of a politician in small town India. Both characters remain nameless throughout the play. The two narratives are like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle that are put together by the audience as the play progresses. Issues of gender and social inequality form the backdrop to human emotions - love, lust, greed, anger, hate and revenge . Featuring: Anirudh Acharya and Kavya Srinivasan . . . . . . . . . . #throwback #flashbackfriday #flashback #bangalore #india #theatre #theatrelife #theatrekid #stage #productionhouse #monologue #backstage #backstage #supporttheearts #stories #shortstory #makeinindia #igers #potd #theatre #theatrelife #actorslife #actor #performance #actor #actorlife #theatre #play #performance #acting #igers #igersofbangalore #igersbangalore

In association with @goetheinstitutbangalore Supported by @attakkalari_centre . Gregor Samsa wakes one morning as a giant insect. Written in 1915, this story has inspired generations of writers, artists and thinkers to delve into strange macabre and the absurd world described in Kafka’s work and seen most starkly in Metamorphosis. . This theatrical version of Metamorphosis using physical theatre, shadow work, text and sound help recreate the journey Gregor makes from turning into an insect, up until his death. .
