Gumm Hai (Hindi/75 mins/Ticketed show)
Directed by: Neelam Man Singh Chowdhry
Synopsis: The play's recurring leitmotif follows Pinki, a young girl of eleven who has gone missing from her village for two months. It examines how an inexplicable loss irrevocably changes the dynamics within a family and the community. These varied skeins of narratives are dovetailed to examine and understand grief, loss, death, human affirmation and survival. It is sourced from many references including The Seven Stages of Grieving, a Performance text by Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman that dips into the history of the aboriginal.
The conversation for this work started with Anuradha Kapur “Nali Wali Larki ”.
