Ek Durachari Raja
Sun Sep 22, 7:00 PM
Shudrka Hyderabad
The play, 'Rajar' has drawn from Camus' “Caligula” the concept of deification of emperors which was common to the pagan world, the Greek and Macedonian kings. Raja (the king) discovers on the death of his sister and lover, Apurupa, that people die and they are not happy. From this point on, obsessed by his search for the absolute, poisoned with contempt and horror, he tries to exercise, through murders and systematic perversion of all values. He rejects friendship, love, simple human solidarity, and the concepts of good and evil. He takes literally all those around him like Taruni, his poet-friend, and forces them to see things logically, and levels everything around him through the force of his rejection. But if his truth involves revolting against destiny, his mistake is to deny humanity. One cannot destroy everything without destroying one's self. This is why Raja depopulates the world around him and, faithful to his own logic, decides to strangle Kamini, his mistress, uttering his gospel of hate at everything around him. This play is the story of a superior suicide, as described by Camus. It is the most human of stories and the most tragic of errors. Faithless to humanity out of faith in himself, he accepts to die for having understood that no one can save himself by himself, and that one cannot be free while opposing humanity. The play remains universally relevant. It represents the face of contemporary despotism, not only in terms of the whimsical madness of rulers, but also in terms of how people react to such rule with a glimmer of hope for the future

the premiere screening of

Songs of Our Soil
by Aditi Maddali
Duration: 52 mins | Language: Telugu with English subtitles

Friday, September 27, 2019 | 07:00 PM | Lamakaan, Hyderabad
Off Road 1, Near GVK Mall, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad - 500 034

Join us for the premiere screening of Songs of Our Soil followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Aditi Maddali and writer - scholar Dr Gogu Shyamala.

Through Uyyala songs, an agricultural tradition rooted in the political expression of women in Telangana, Songs of Our Soil traces the histories of their resistance and memories of disillusionment. By looking at women’s participation in major political movements, from the Telangana People’s Movement to the demands of justice from the contemporary Mallana Sagar Irrigation project, this film attempts to complicate the relationship between memory, history and cultural production.

Aditi Maddali is a Mumbai-based researcher and multimedia producer. She is currently pursuing an MPhil in Women's Studies.

Aditi Maddali received a grant from India Foundation for the Arts, under the Arts Research programme made possible with support from Titan Company Limited.

Is Kambakht Sathe Ka Kya Karen?
Tue Oct 1, 7:30 PM
Udaan Performing Arts, Hyderabad
The most awaiting play of Udaan is back.'Is Kambakht Sathe Ka Kya Karen'. This play is an adaptation of the Marathi play, 'Sathecha Kay Karaycha', penned by the noted playwright Rajiv Naik and translated into Hindi by Jyoti Subhash.

The story focuses on the tender relationship between a husband and a wife. It tells us about the happily married life of a couple - Abhay, an ad filmmaker and Salma, a lecturer in college. Each of them face different tribulations in their professional lives, but Abhay takes his troubles far too seriously. He is of the opinion that his colleague Sathe does not deserve the recognition he gets. On the other hand, Salma loves her work and does not care about quick promotion and success. She believes that everything should be done with a pure heart. At a peak point, Salma deals with the situation and handles Abhay's frustration. At the end of the play, both build a strong trust in the relationship and create a companionship that surpasses understanding. The twists and turns and the tribulations the couple faces in balancing their married and professional lives form the rest of the story. This play tries to depict that a positive attitude can make things better.

Sat Oct 12, 8:00 PM
kissago Theatre
The story begins when Sudheer comes to ‘see’ Aarti for marriage and goes on to evaluate, through these two characters, the existentialist tussle between what one has to be vs what one wants to be, how one chooses to live vs how one wishes to live. Aarti has this unusual idea of role playing each other in order to momentarily be what they each wish to be. It turns out to be more than just ‘Chuhal’ (meaning playful tease) and starts getting serious. But, does it help them answer their questions? Does it raise more questions? Watch this play to see where it goes.
