I INSIST YOU DESIST!

I have had enough. This brutalisation has to be brooked. This kind of carnage cannot continue. Why do we commit, collude, conspire and then condone the crucifixion of the English language? Before anyone of you accuses me of cosying up to our erstwhile masters – brutal and marauding they may have been – let me … Continue reading

Cardamom, back by popular demand!

We have had another FOUR houseful shows of Hasnain Shaikh’s CARDAMOM to an audience of about 1600 people, a good 1,400 of whom, would have been a first time audience. This is remarkable!

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 … Continue reading

Musings From a Well-Heeled Theatre Person But a First Time META Selection Committee Member!

However diverse our culture, our theatre draws from two basic premises, one between two to three thousand years old, Natya Sashtra.  The other being 200 years old, the Western theatre form that emerged in the salons of the British colonials introducing proscenium theatre and giving urban theatre a voice. Our iconic Parsi Theatre then took … Continue reading

A chief Guest

Of desultory applause and ‘lawful’ suspense! The scene is straight out of an incident that happened a few days ago. I reluctantly agree to be the Chief Guest at a function related to theatre. A taxi comes to take me to the other end of the city. It is obviously a long journey. I am … Continue reading
