ARTISTS Chaepani
Tell Tales is an evening of sharing stories across time and across borders through a twin lens of performance aesthetics. It stages two plays, Andhar Nagori Chaupat Raja and Root Map, each built on a distinct artistic form and socio-cultural ethos.

Andhar Nagori Chaupat Raja:
Directors : Vandana Alase Hazra & Amlan Chaudhuri
Original Play: Bharatendu Harishchandra
Andhar Nagori Chaupat Raja is a political satire written by Bharatendu Harishchandra in 1881'. This particular stage adaptation is a musical based on Indian classical aesthetics and gesture language. The play derives its sources from Bharatendu Harishchandra's original play and A.K Ramanujan's folk tale about the kingdom of a whimsical king who ordered to change day into night and night into day and where everything sold for 1 rupee. The play originally written for children, finds critical relevance today, in the way it satirizes the judiciary, the executive system and the religious institutions.

Root Map

The development of Root Map, is an outcome of an ongoing collaborative video-conferencing course Bodies at the Borders between JadavpurUniversity,Kolkata and Cornell University, U.S.A, This international production, is the first of its kind, that has been developed over digital platform out of cross readings and sharing of experiences of the borders in South Asia and Latin America after which the artists are travelling to Kolkata to stage it on 27th January,2017
