Back on stage
What: Theatres across the city are back with stage plays, following the government permission to perform plays with 50% capacity. Pierrot’s Troupe’s return to stage performances with two plays. ‘To Gandhi Ji With Spelling Mistakes’ is a humorous presentation woven around five 12-15-year-old boys and girls writing an English letter replete with spelling errors, to Gandhi Ji after the latter’s death. They assume that Gandhi Ji died since they ignored his advice to stop playing games like “Hindi Sena – Pakistani Fauj” in 1947-48. This will be followed by ‘Mushaira Marhumeen Ka’. The premier show traces, in the most entertaining manner possible, the history of Urdu poetry — from the 13th century to the previous one; from Ameer Khusrau to Parveen Shakir. It, thus, pulls together Urdu poetry’s tallest figures: Ameer Khusrau, Quli Qutub Shah, Wali Dakni, Mir Taqi Mir, Mirza Ghalib, Mir Anis, Akbar Allahabadi, Mouhammad Iqbal, Firaq Gorakhpuri, Josh Malihabadi, Faiz Ahmad Faiz, and Praveen Shakir.

What: Nature Morte is back with another online Viewing Room with Reena Saini Kallat’s most recent series of drawings titled ‘Deep Rivers Run Quiet’. The Viewing Room is an avenue for the gallery to showcase new works being made by their artists. In lieu of the current lack of actual exhibitions in their gallery space, the Viewing Room provides a deep immersion into the artist’s practice. This is particularly true for their newest Viewing Room exhibition ‘Deep Rivers Run Quiet’ where they share rare glimpses of Kallat’s studio processes, as well as an immersive look at her new series of drawings. Kallat veers towards abstraction, using the irregular and possibly illogical demarcations that divide people, ideologies, economies, and imposed identities. The boundaries that have been forced upon both geographies and demographics may be found by the artist, but they appear spontaneous.
