Frankly Speaking hit that golden balance of experimental form and powerful content.
- The Hindu
Frankly Speaking is a narrative that takes off from where Anne Frank's diary leaves us, and positions the truth of genocide being a formulaic reality, through the voices of eight young women from the world's many conflict zones. A blend of verses and excerpts from Anne's Diary, the exposition takes you beyond the bare minimum that statistics offer in any narrative on genocide, into the hearts of those that face and survive it. The play
will be followed by an interaction with the audience. The evening not only includes this piece of Immersive Theatre but also will feature the recent successful contemporary
dance theatre piece Duende, that ran to two packed houses, by Madras Dance Arts featuring The High Kicks - All Girls Dance Ensemble. About Crea-Shakthi
