``Dastaan Live`` is an exploration of the Indian condition through a multi-arts experience that combines live music with the visual arts, sound & light design to tell the story of New Delhi.
With music composed by Anirban Ghosh and Sumant Balakrishnan at its foundation, it is driven by visuals and poetry from Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Sahir Ludhianvi, Majaz, Nazir and Baba Nagarjuna. We seek to explore new ways to make the show more immersive for audience members and provide a forum to cast light on their own experiences and perspectives on the issues raised during our performance.
