Event Description : 
THEATRE : Qissa Kothi presents "Bundelkhand Ki Virgin Machhliyan (Premiere)" Hindi Play based on Lokenath Bhattacharya's The Virgin Fish of Babughat

Have you ever imagined waking up one morning in a camp? A camp which is a perfect world where you have the material pleasures of a good life. What if this perfectly glossy camp promises carnal pleasures but you are not in charge even for the basic needs of life? How does it feel to have a life swept away by constant fear and paranoia of being watched over the shoulder, by a faceless power. What if right now this life of surveillance is your reality and you are already in a camp without knowing of it?

This novel is a shameless testimony against the State or those who are in Power. Individuals who were once citizens are now inmates under constant observation. What they have in exchange is a hedonistic lifestyle. They have lost their identities since their different ways of being have been erased. All prisoners of this camp must be the same. They have been reduced to their productivity and segregated according to their skill sets. Women have been reduced to resources for reproduction. Their virginity is thus a fundamental parameter to judge their ability. In this hedonistic world, is it possible to find love? 

Our protagonist who is nameless or may be one of you happens to find love in Chandrima, the moon-faced. In this grotesque developed world he finds a hint of beauty. This is a dangerous beauty that turns the world of the camp upside down. Scenes of this impossible love story in this dystopian world are knit together like frames in a film running through those years of captivity, editing together a panorama of social breakdowns. Five actors live through these breakdowns fighting their will to act. They are not allowed to without permission. 

Bundelkhand Ki Virgin Machhliyan is a political satire that promises to give a good many laughs - at your self!

Language : Hindi (primary language), English, Telegu, Sindhi, Kumauni

Writer / Director : Sharmistha Saha

Cast : Qissa Kothi

About the group : QISSA KOTHI was formed about a year back when some artists/researchers based in Mumbai were grappling with a name for their collective explorations. Several names were discussed before one decided upon Qissa Kothi, a name that embodies the tradition of performance in the outside of accepted social life - the Kotha culture and the many said/unsaid qissa that it holds. 

Qissa Kothi aims at collective explorations of the personal beings of the artists who are housed in this group. These explorations are of course reflective of the society at large. Her Letters, funded by the Tagore Centre in Berlin is its first production.
