The Darkroom Project by Tushar T. Dalvi

A darkroom is a room that can be made completely dark to allow the processing of light sensitive photographic materials such as photographic film and photographic paper. In most darkrooms, a projection system is used for printing that projects the image of a negative onto a photo paper.
Much similar to a Blackbox theatre where the story of the play which is performed could be considered as the Photographic Film; Audience psyche as the Photographic paper; while the performance itself as the Projector and performers, singers, musicians, make-up and lights as the chemicals used post exposure.

When making prints, a Red light is used as a safe light to illuminate the work area without exposing the paper. During exposure, values in the image can be adjusted, most often by 'dodging' i.e. reducing the amount of light to a specific area of an image by selectively blocking light to it for part or all of the exposure time, or as in our case selectively balancing narration and enactment in each story. Another way is "burning" i.e. giving additional exposure to specific area of an image by exposing only it while blocking light to the rest, or as in our case involving all the sensory faculties of audience rather than just seeing and hearing.

So, this is an attempt to replicate the print developing process into a theatrical experience for our audience to help them picturize the stories in their psyche.
