Inspired by the bizarre and extraordinary quality of a human dream, Khwaab-Sa – Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream features an ensemble of 16 dancers, actors, singers and musicians, weaving Hindustani classical and electronic music, contemporary dance, spoken word, and gibberish into an enchanting landscape where fairies banter in raag, lovers express torment with their bodies, and actors converse unintelligibly.
As bodies and voices drift from real to unreal, sometimes slowly, sometimes suddenly, and as images and sounds waft in and out of the mind, just like a dream, Khwaab-Sa transports you into the Bard’s fantastical vision, bringing you a night of romance and comedy that will leave you wanting more.
Performed in Hindi & gibberish with English surtitles.
Mature content. Recommended for 13 years and above.
