Second R&D trip for Reimagine India

Deborah has come to the end of five inspiring and productive days of research and development in India.

Working with internationally acclaimed writer Mike Kenny, Sukhesh Arora and Simran Arneja from Yellowcat Theatre and five Delhi based actors – Neel Sengupta, Kriti Pant, Amba Suhasini Jhala, Piyush Kumar and Anirudh Nair.

During this time the group have collaboratively explored possibilities of both the content and form of two new performances inspired by the Partition of India that will be touring schools and venues in India and the UK from Autumn 2017.

This new work will include an epic storytelling piece, that Mike Kenny is beginning to draft from the material created and gathered so far in India. Then the second piece, which is drawn from the context of the storytelling is being developed as a participative performance that will actively engagement with contemporary issues of difference, faith, identity and home.
