Relationships feed our lives. Whether it’s between people, with ideas, or with ourselves, relationships bring meaning to our intertwined experiences. Explore this complexity & richness through solo performances of timeless hindustani short stories. In Premchand’s ‘Bade Bhaisahab’, two brothers are in arms against each other and the education system. Kamleshwar’s ‘Story’ looks at the self and the other through the eyes of a seasoned journalist. And finally, in Asad Mohammad Khan’s ‘Mai Dada’, a pathan named Abdul Majid Khan Yusuf Zai makes us question the idea of identity. With no sets or props, this is theatre at its simplest and purest, where the story is king & imagination reigns supreme.
