About the Event

Cast Off All Shame begins with a medieval bhakti poet Janabai coming alive and taking the role of an agony aunt to today’s women who have issues ranging from domestic abuse to buying sanitary pads, who get body shamed and slut shamed. What follows is a thought provoking theatre experience punctuated with soulful bhakti poetry and tongue-in-cheek observations.


What happens when Janabai wakes up from the dead only to hear politicians' voices finding solution to molestation cases in dressing women up "properly"?


Punctuated with poetry and stories, Cast Off All Shame adds to the debate of women's body rights and many other pertinent issues. But in this piece the spirited Janabai (and Janabai as spirit) is not some angry feminist - she is the one who has seen it all and has learnt to laught about it.


As Janabai straddles two epochs alluding to margina women Bhakti poets and mainstream viral comments, this one woman show balances perfectly the lirerary and the entertaining.


When the show begins, Janabai is in deep thoughts and you might be amused, but in the end if you who is left thinking and she who is amused....
