Bhagi Hui Ladkiyan | The Hindu Theatre Fest
These stories that begin on a random day, are first-hand retellings of day-to-day life in Nizamuddin Basti. The spectator is invited to enter the performer's world - Through the everydayness of the narrative. The stories emphasize how gender and sexuality plays out in the lives of the four actors. Conversations about family, trust,consent, personal space and gender dynamics begin to surface.
The performance attempts to highlight the contrast between the confining yet comfortable quality of the home space, and the liberating aspects of the outside world. The differences between ‘Who I am’ and ‘How people see me’ guide the explorations, that the performers embark on.
