Based on a False Story Performance
Based on a False Story gives expression to the situation faced by people on being browbeaten by world politics. The two clowns enteed the performance area and created a disturbance. After long bouts of squabbles and fights, they both agreed that this has to end and decided to divide the space. But the situation became even more volatile after the division. The squabbling escalated over minor issues. They finally came to the decision to create a buffer space in between their respective areas. Then came the stumbling block of what to do with the people (audience) in the buffer zone. The state of the general people/audience in this wrangling situation was the basis of the interactive performance Based on a False Story. The show, also performed at KCC on 25th September, was well-attended and earned praise from one and all.
Venue: Open-air Stage, Rabindra Tirtha
