Event Description : 
THEATRE : Team Dastangoi Presents 'The Tihar Players' The Gallows Project 

The Gallows Project re-imagines the experience of the death penalty, and indeed of the prison itself, using the writings and performances of actual inmates. It takes us on a journey which begins in contemporary Tihar in New Delhi, through to Charlestown Prison of Malcolm X, the Women's jail of Vartika Nanda's Tinka Tinka Tihar, Kobad Ghandy's letter to Behind Bars’ author Sunetra Chaudhri, remembering his best friend in Tihar, Mirza Ghalib's rumination on incarceration and Oscar Wilde's immortal Ballad of Reading Goal. These readings are knit together by scenes from present day prison life in India.  Fusing music, poetry and dialogue, and presented by former inmates the performance takes you to a nether land which is created in our name but of which we know so little – and ​so rarely examine.  

Every Prison that Men build is built with bricks of shame

And Bound with Bars lest Christ should see how Men their Brothers Maim

Performers: Manisha Sethi, Vartika Nanda, Darain Shahidi, Dharmendra Kumar, Dinesh Sharma, Bilal Khan, Ishan and Golu.

Produced by : Anusha Rizvi

Directed by : Mahmood Farooqui
