the performances...

Mobile mania: here we present our humorous take on the cellular epidemic that has engulfed the society today. Our satirical depiction aims to show the extent of our hypocrisy and cellular phone dependency today. As usual, we can’t but help see the funny side to it. But what is of essence is the undertone of the mime, for as usual once again, we but can’t help ask a few questions as well. Our world sure did change the day the words rang out loud and clear, करलो दुनियाँ मुट्ठी में, too bad that it wasn’t precisely the way the we thought it would change.

Cell phone freaks! That’s what we are!

Chor Murti, Murti Chor: welcome to the world of nonsense. This one is an absolute humor mela, nothing short of a laugh fest. When two street smart thieves (chindi chors) are put in the same world as a policewallah, a victimized idealist man, two school children with a fly (makhhi) as the main catalyst character, pandemonium breaks loose. And so does laughter!

Dream-chaser: the main event, this particular performance is the central image of the vision of the world that we bring to you. A world of aspirations and success, of loneliness and companionship, of despairing poverty and wealth, of villages and cities, of tyrannical and draconian social structures, of chaos and anarchy and mindless violence that defeats all sense of rationality. This is a world that we have tilled with the sweat from our brows and then again burnt to the ground with the flames of our hate and ignorance. We take a look at the journey of our protagonist ‘M’ through this world and see it from his eyes as he realizes that not every chase leads to the top and not every pursuit fulfills one’s dreams. His perspective leads us through the labyrinths of life and to the edge of the social chaos on whose fine edge we have balanced our existence.

Questions are asked, but none answered as reality unfolds itself out of the rosy cloak of blind ambition and draconian power. We are here to simply show you what we see of our world. Give you our perspective. If you want the answers,

"introspect and think for yourself!"
