Check It Out: Stories In A Song
Directed by Sunil Shanbag and conceived by Shubha Mudgal, Stories in a Song brings you accounts of music-making in India, as well as stories of the struggles and hardships faced by musicians both real and imaginary. This lays the foundation for a collage of dramatised episodes that blend theatre, music and literature. Several forms of theatre in India make evident use of music, but Stories in a Song makes use of theatre to tell stories of musical forms such as Kajri, Thumri-Dadra, Khayal and re-mixes. Written by Aslam Parvez, Ashok Mishra, Vikram Phukan and Anil Deshmukh, and presented by Arpana and Underscore Records, the play features Shubrojyoti Barat, Gopal Tiwari, Ketki Thatte, Namit Das, Santosh Tiwari and Pia Sukanya among others.
