Date - 1st Feb
Time - 7.30pm
Ticket - Rs. 300

It Will Take You As Far As You Can Get.
The mutation to the crash-test dummy begins when you enter the room. You may be used to the situation of an overall accelerating situation, so you wont realize how this one is taking you directly to a crash. Explore your limits of tolerance. Welcome to the experiment.
Did we all become the crash-test dummies of the 21st century? But no dummy can exist without a wall. Are there any
walls? And if not How far can we fly? AS FAR AS WE ARE.

Welcome to the Laboratory Test: Live and Society
Humor is a way to deal with the unbearable itself. And taking this humor for a test right is the aim of the performance. AS FAR AS WE ARE will take the audience to their boundaries. Limits of
perception and the bearable: it is charming at first, but slowly the smiles will start to crack and reveal places of discomfort. An experiment one should not miss. An experiment for an reality
check of the self.

"A piece that seems serene, but incorporates both ingenious and perfidious elements. AS FAR AS
WE ARE is a virtuoso-playful and yet abysmal high performance. Drehpunktkultur / Erhard Petzel

We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.
