About the Event

The thing is ... I wish I could

 wish “sometimes implies a longing, especially for the unattainable …”

 And what could be a more apt metaphor for 2020 ?  Wishing, hoping.


Three writers explore the idea of wishing through the worlds of three unusual characters. In Sifar an innocent question from a child sends a director on a journey to discover what he really wishes to do with his theatre. In Lekhak Ki Begum the cheerful housewife nurtures fiercely a desire to enter the intellectual world inhabited by her husband. In the Wishful Life of Vishu we see a loser, embittered against the deep injustice of a cynical class divide. Interweaving these three pieces is Bindu, a choreographed piece that explores primeval human longings that are resolute and hopeful.

With the re-opening of live performance spaces, come spend an evening with us on our beautiful open air terrace space at Studio Tamaasha !
