Associated mostly with riot-prone areas and teenaged girls, it's no surprise
that these words should be the titles of plays that you are warned about. Curfew
and Combat are the two plays being presented on separate days by Sanskar in association
with COVA and Hyderabad Times. The plays will see young actors from Mumbai performing
on stage, directed by Jaimini Pathak. They usually present the unperformed, unpublished
scripts of Indian writers, aiming to discover the wealth in indigenous writing.
Both the plays were written by Ramu Ramanathan and directed by Jaimini Pathak. Pathak began his career in theater as an actor in 1990. He has worked with stage stalwarts like Satyadev Dubey, Naseeruddin Shah and Vikram Kapadia, and debuted as Director with Curfew. He has acted in 18 theater productions as on date.
Curfew is a wild and colorful play defying all conventions, from Hindu myths and yuppie culture to theater itself. A magical peepul tree that provides live music in the play also tells stories - mythical and real, old and new. Curfew has already had a silver jubilee showing in Mumbai.
The second play, Combat, is a comic look at the meaninglessness of war. This is a brand new play that has just premiered in Mumbai, and uses song, dance, animation and slides - providing virtually a total theater experience. It explores with humor the fact that the human race is ready to go to war at the drop of a hat - or a bombshell. The sets are made in such a manner that the play can be performed anywhere and anytime.
