Esplanade Presents | Pentas Cerita ...
Being in control is very much like cooking. One needs to be meticulous at every step, be mindful of one’s actions and not let things stew too long. It’s like making Asam Pedas (spicy tamarind fish), for example, a beloved Malay dish known for its tart, sour and spicy profiles, that is quick to cook but always on the brink of burning. For Roslan, whose dispassionate wife’s routine includes cooking Asam Pedas for him and their two children, food is one of the few things that add colour to his life. Like the dish, his temper tends to rise and hit boiling point, all too quickly sometimes. Gentle and affectionate one moment, he singes and sears the next. At home, there is unspoken love, and there are painful scars. There are responsibilities, and there is the ideal of what a home should be. How will the cycles of joy and sadness, resentment and resignation be broken when they are always teetering on the brink and on rinse and repeat? What are his limits of control?First staged in 1995, Cerita Cinta marks playwright and director Noor Effendy Ibrahim’s return to Malay theatre since Bilik Ahmad Berdaki (2009). Presenting an unabashed view of the threads that bind a family, it examines the dysfunctionality of an atypical Malay household.Advisory: This performance contains mature themes and violence.

Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of ...
What happens when roles are reversed in a male-dominated theatre practice like yakshagana?India Foundation for the Arts grantee and theatre practitioner Sharanya Ramprakash’s Akshayambara explores the conflicts in tradition, gender, power and morality that are inherent in yakshagana.The experimental play uses both modern theatrical tools and the dance drama to create a contemporary narrative that raises questions on female representation and male ownership. Drawing from research and personal experience, the performance imagines a reversal of roles in the popular yakshagana plot of Draupadi Vastrapaharana. A male artist in streevesha (female costume) plays the virtuous Draupadi and espouses the cause of women, while in a tradition-defying move, a woman dons the pradhana purusha vesha (masculine form) of Kaurava (a legendary king from the Mahabharatha) who is driven by lust and power. What happens to the interpretation and performance of gender when a man plays a woman and when a man is played by a woman? Who is the real woman and who is the real man? We see a constant shift in power between the actors, as they shift from the cauki (green room) to stage, engaged in a tussle that blurs the boundaries of stage and reality, male and female, thereby examining the conflicts in tradition, gender, power and morality. Written and directed by Sharanya Ramprakash, Akshayambara received several nominations at the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards (META) 2016, winning Best Original Script (Sharanya Ramprakash) and Best Actor in a Lead Role – Male (Prasad Cherkady).Sharanya is a stage actor, director and one of the founders of Dramanon, Bangalore. Over the last eight years, she has directed six full-length productions that have been staged over 75 times across the country. She received the INLAKS Theatre Award in 2014, and had trained at the Udupi Yakshagana Kendra under the tutelage of Guru Sanjeeva Suvarna. She received a grant from India Foundation for the Arts under the Arts Practice Programme in 2015, which was partly supported by Voltas India Limited.Supported by India Foundation of the ArtsFor more details about Kalaa Utsavam 2018, visit www.esplanade.com/kalaautsavam

International PremiereOne of the unsung heroes of the Indian epic Ramayana is the army of monkeys from the land of Kishkindha that helped Rama win his war against the demon king Ravana. But before these simian soldiers followed him into war, their ruler, the monkey king Bali, commanded them all.A meditation on justice, ethics and morality, Adishakti’s Bali is a retelling of the crucial events that led to the death of the titular character, which set the rest of the story in motion.
