Burn My Diaries Written & Performed by Shweta Desai Directed by Akhshay Gandhi A Still Space Production Language: English
This is a story of a woman attempting to defy her condition, her limitations in experiencing the world fully as one person. The play journeys through her psychosomatic condition as she discovers ways to co-exist with her many selves.
What happens when the real self disagrees with everyone else contained in her, and the war to find peace is fought with same capacities of mind that has caused it?
This psychological exposition, investigates the divisions of the mind and while navigating through these divisions how Imagination manifests itself into reality.
When the line between the real & imaginary blurs, when time fluidly rushes in many directions, when memory & experience merge with each other, what is revealed is our mind’s inner intricate workings, what is comprehended is complexities of mind’s capacities. By experiencing her resolutions, her imagined reality, her arguments, her battles and her relationship with past & present, we begin to accept ourselves as we are; humanizing the discussion around body-mind wellness.
