Dir.Shabari Rao. Group: The Big Fat Company. 
“Am I a good actor even though I am fat?”, “How does being in this body shape me as an actor?” “Did Shakespeare say Hamlet was lean?” In search of answers to these questions, The Big Fat Company plays with ‘Hayavadana’ and has come up with Head 2 Head, a unique devised theatre performance. By using sections of the iconic Kannada play by Girish Karnad, it interrogates identity and archetypes, and the much-vaunted mind-body (dis)connection. An important question for actors with large bodies who deal with this quandary on a daily basis is: Where does identity lie: head or body? Or both?
