Musings from our Director Duo

As we head into rehearsal for our upcoming season of Rudali – The Mourner at The Herald Theatre, myself and Amit Ohdedar, my co director have been asked to write a series of blogs on the journey leading up to production. My focus will be on the theatrical approach that we are taking and an insight into the rehearsal process and performance elements that we are exploring for this exciting landmark production.

Tagore and the Kingdom of Cards

Tagore. Rabindranath Tagore. Remember him? Author of the Indian and Bangladesh national anthem? Images of a very old man with a flowing beard who looks like he is 150 years old? Well, he is. Tagore would have celebrated his 150th birthday if he were around. After a good run of six decades of creativity in the form of poetry, plays, stories, political essays, paintings, music and academia...Tagore deserves a big party. You are invited.
