Details
No Rest in the Kingdom is a devised theater work that deals with the daily hilariousness and annoyances of being a woman in this country, and almost anywhere. Cats crawl, urban men and women seem baffled with ‘this gender thing’ and a general unsettlement around what we are implicit in presents itself. Truly, the kingdom feels a bit at unrest. Everything else is chill scenes, bro.

Devised and performed by Deepika Arwind.

Transmedia, god bless you for being in our lives. Niranjan Gokhale, Vilson, Janak and everyone else on your team. We re currently working with 15 people having a debate on how to rig some lights. It's a circus of sorts. Can't wait to come back. We had forgotten what it was like working with randomness. Immense gratitude that we have you to turn to. Big round of thanks from all of us.

The Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan in association with Sandbox Collective, invited theatre people to explore the large database of German language plays that have been translated and are available on its website.

'Creeps' by Lutz Hbner

Directed by Basav Biradar

29 July at 6:30pm

Entry free. All are welcome.

About Lutz Hbner:

Lutz Hbner is the most performed living playwright in Germany. His plays have been translated and staged in more than twenty countries all over the world. His most recent awards are the Bavarian Film Award for the Best Movie Script 2015 and the Award of the Frankfurt Playwrights Foundation 2016. He writes most of his plays in collaboration with Sarah Nemitz.

He has been and worked several times in India/Bangalore, most recently to lead a workshop in Bangalore: No Such Thing, on developing new plays for young audiences, an initiative of our long-standing partner and bangaloREsidency host Ranga Shankara and Yellowcat Theatre.

About the play:

Three teenage girls from different parts of the country are pitted against each other to win a television reality contest to be the host of a new show "Creeps". But are they ready for it? What are their reasons to participate in such a contest? Will they go all out to win at any cost? This play is about all this and more.

About Basav Biradar:

Basav Biradar is a Bangalore-based Playwright, Theatre director and film maker with a keen interest in history and archiving. His first play 'The Return of the Sultan' was long listed for The Hindu Metroplus Playwrights' Award 2013. He directed a Kannada play "Basava Express" in 2016. He has recently made a documentary film - Before The Third Bell - A film on contemporary theatre making via the creative journey of the play 'Muktidham'. He also writes regularly for the local newspapers on history and heritage.

Why I chose the script:

For the last one year, I have been interested in narratives of young people and have tried to study how they respond to the pressures and complexities of growing up in today's so called connected world. This Play by Lutz Hubner explores a very interesting aspect in teenage lives today - the reality television. While watching the shows such as MTV Roadies, I have always wondered who are these young boys and girls who are so desperate to be part of this kind of television. This play gives me an opportunity for me to understand the commercial world of reality TV and also what it means to teenagers.

What I am doing with it:

The play has a camera as one of the main characters and this interests me immensely. I am planning to work with camera and a group of youngsters for this rehearsed reading. I am really excited about this.

No REST IN THE KINGDOM

12 August | Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan | 7 PM

13 August | Atta Galatta | 7 PM

For ages 13+

No Rest in the Kingdom, a devised, physical theatre performance, came out of the need to have a conversation about the daily misogynies we are implicit in perpetrating. A comedy with music and movement, in which the performer plays four characters - two male, one female, and one feline, NRITK draws from the lives of urban characters who speak similar languages of consumerism and technology. Young and old men and women who are themselves baffled at this gender question often find themselves walking on thin ice, oblivious, and sometimes very aware of the dangerous biases they hold. The laughter often received is both ludicrous and uncomfortable oftentimes knowing that the outrageous world of inequities we inhabit is very much within us.

Written, directed and performed by Deepika Arwind.

Produced by Sandbox Collective.

Supported by Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices.

ABOUT DEEPIKA ARWIND

Deepika Arwind is a Bangalore-based actor, writer and director. Her works include Nobody Sleeps Alone (nominated for The Hindu Metroplus Playwrights' Award 2013), A Brief History of Your Hair (supported by India Foundation for the Arts, The New Voices Arts Project and Lshva Studio). Her children's play One Dream Too Many was invited to the International Playwright's Intensive at The Kennedy Centre, Washington DC and the University of Maryland in association with ASSITEJ India. She is the recipient of the Toto Award for Creative Writing and was part of the Sangam House International Writer's Residency.
