What Is It?
This experimental performance features snippets of everyday conversation interspersed with abstract explorations of sound inspired by Tibetan throat singing. Notes On Chai tries to create a palpable understanding of who we are in a predominantly urban setting. The play is a humorous exploration of our desires, fears and insecurities that we experience on a daily basis, without ever fully expressing them. Mumbai-based Jyoti Dogra strongly roots her work in the Indian urban experience, drawing from a well of personal histories.
Who Is It For?
Anyone who has an appreciation for the role that the arts play in urban Indian society and culture will greatly appreciate Dogra’s experimental piece on the everyday realities of life. If you're looking for some answers to life's many questions, this might just be the place to find them, while also enjoying a great show!
Why Should I Go For It?
This is your chance to experience experimental theatre at its best. Jyoti Dogra, well known on the theatre scene for her works like The Doorway and K, will be in Bangalore for a few days only. The piece questions our relation to urban preoccupations like traffic, food and fashion, all of which are not directly related to us but which subtly reveal our inner lives and individuality. You can expect well-written dialogue, beautifully orchestrated and minimal lighting and stage aesthetics, and a top-notch performance.
