Page to Stage – Performative Book Reading
Written & directed by Dr. Omkar Bhatkar
The NCPA Library in collaboration with Metamorphosis Theatre and Films
Life passes by and there comes a moment when you wonder whether you are in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself. How does one talk about separation? Do we even have the right words to describe something that can be both utterly mundane and completely transcendent, pulling us out of our everyday lives and making us feel a part of something greater than ourselves? ‘Raindrops on my Window’ provides an intimate window into the great events and quotidian trifles that come with being in a relationship, giving you an indelible and deeply moving portrait of love in contemporary times. A simple play about love and its loss; a couple’s contemplation—was it merely the loss of love or much more?
Poet and translator Bharti Birje Diggikar says, “Omkar Bhatkar’s literature explores the purposelessness of life, the boredom that overwhelms relationships, and the basic human loneliness through flowing repetitive soliloquies. In a boring routine, seemingly pointless moments can also act as a ticking time bomb. Indecisive milestones become an endless pattern. Through myriad micro-spaces, ‘Raindrops on my window’ raises many fundamental questions about love and togetherness.”
