We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.

Ques by Shriya from The New Indian Express: What kind of dancing is the audience going to witness?

Dayita & Poorna: Each piece pulls from different references and movement histories. But each piece also reflects its devised process. The movement can be risky, contained, frenzied, calm, composed, and abandoned. We hope that the audience might find, as we do, empathy within the mathematics of the choreography. Still, there is no single way to read this work. We experience it differently each time we perform it.

The premiere of Citations: Three Dances is in THREE DAYS! Excite much!

Since the first edition was a success, and we had so much fun putting it together with Anjum Hasan, Eshwar Sundaresan and Zac O'Yeah, it felt natural to do a ROUND II :D

Yep yep!

It's time to be the writer you've always wanted to be.

Early bird deadline for application submission is 31 Dec, 2017.

#thewritetime #bwfsdwpII
To write is to experience the world anew, even as the world moulds you through writing. Writing sharpens your faculties, sensitises you to language, and enables you to find a voice. As a writer you could tell your own story or those of others, create narratives or report on those unfolding around you, find new ways to communicate your ideas, and tune in to other styles of thinking. Writing could also bring you in contact with fellow writers, give you an income, enable you to travel, open out a career. Or it could just enhance your interest in literature.

Bangalores World-Famous Semi-Deluxe Writing Course has been designed with all these possibilities in mind. This 9-weekend program will make you an aware and innovative writer.

Over nine weekends, you will spend your mornings in a classroom learning skills, understanding craft, and trying your hand at a range of genres, while using your spare time to complete assignments that will be reviewed by the faculty on an individual basis. This hands-on and interactive experience promises to be an engaging way to challenge yourself to do something new. By the end of the workshop you will be writing courageously and skilfully.

|| What you gain from the program ||

> 17 creative writing classes across genres

> 6 workshops

> The habit of writing regularly

> The confidence to write like a master

> Tools and techniques, taught by Bangalores celebrated expert writers, to help you write with impact

> An exposure to various genres including short stories, thrillers, travelogues, childrens literature, writing for film and television, business writing, column writing, poetry and translations

> The ability to look at ones own writing critically and with the resolve to improve it

> An understanding of emerging market conditions and what it takes to succeed commercially as a writer
