Coming from the capital city of Scotland this month is ‘Nirbhaya, the play’, a theatre production inspired from a true incident of sexual violence. Directed by Yael Farber, this political piece interlaces the victim’s story with the performing artists’ own personal testimonies and what follows in its wake.
3 Cities, 7 Artists, 1 Story
Born out of a Facebook interaction and funded with the aid of the Internet, ‘Nirbhaya, the play’ will be premiering in India for the first time, travelling to three cities – Mumbai (March 18 to 20), Delhi and Bangalore through this month. The show will feature performances by seven actors, some of whom are victims of crime themselves. It opened to rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and we think you should definitely add this to your March to-do list.
Getting there: Mumbai - NCPA- Tata Theatre, New Delhi - FICCI Auditorium, Bangalore - Rangashankara, show timings -7:30 pm tickets are priced at Rs. 500/300/200 and can be purchased here or at the venue on days of the show, for details visit http://www.nirbhayatheplay.com/
