The word 'Danga'  a very shattering word, on the contrary, the word 'Muavje..!' is a very reliving one.The deeper meaning of these 2 words and the greed, the profit that gives foundation to the riots - but blame religion and community, is satirically examined in this play.

 This time we chose Tukaram Maharaj not only because his ‘Abhangas’ became the most important asset of Marathi Literature but also contemporary saints like him have brought our society on the right track by bringing a social change in the areas of discrimination, ignorance.
Indeed Tukaram Maharaj was Maharashtra’s most revolutionary saint.The story through his life shows his bright and lovely childhood days to his days of poverty and sufferings and then transforming himself by experiences of life and his abh abhangs as Sant Tukaram .

Swatantra Theatre have conceptualized to bring to powerful forms of Performing Art’s to come together and celebrate the essence of Womanhood. The journey of woman through ages has been awe inspiring. Different cultures, her responsibilities, courage, compassion, wisdom has made a difference to we see what the worls looks like, today.

We salute to this spirit and bring to you Stree Tantra

Play Back Theatre will be performed. Anyone can be a part of it. Just  that she has to come with her own story related to the topic. It could be abuse, disrespect, hurt, mental agony, struggle to success and all that what has impacted her life. And the actors will play back on it.

Playback Theatre  is as unique method of interactive acting, where the play is instantly and collectively co-created by the actors and the audience. It does not resemble the typical theatre act where a scripted play is performed. It is based out of the audience’s stories, dreams, moments, expectations, bits and pieces of everyday life, issues that might concern all however they affect us individually on different levels.

These accounts are offered by the audience to the actors, who instantly give life to them on stage, impromptu and with no prior preparation. The process results in a deep, powerful experience that makes the actors and the audience richer within and beyond the stage limits.

Playback Theatre is an original form of improvisational theatre in which audience or group members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot.

Jab Sheher Hamara Sota Hain    

writer Piyush Mishra

Short Synopsis

Based on movie 'West side story' which had bagged the maximum awards in year 1961. The movie was based on a broadway musical which had the Romeo and Juliet as the base. 

The same happens here. Between a rough war between the two gangs stands this beautiful romantic story between Tarana and Abhaas. The play talks over many issues, the communal wars, the rivalry for an identity,crisis and hatred. But in turn very deeply wakes up the emotions to work for Peace and removing the communal hatred. It also very delicately puts the responsibility to shape the younger generation to the most value creating path.

Taj Mahal ka Tender  

writer Ajay Shukla

Short Synopsis :

More than two decades back, Ajay Shukla's “Taj Mahal Ka Tender” has won its writer both the Sahitya Kala Parishad the Mohan Rakesh Samman. Since then, the play has seen countless performances all over.Its biting wit throws a powerful punch, and remains, despite the passage of years, both relevant and well-loved.The story of Taj Mahal’s construction, the play begins at the point when Emperor Shah Jahan first decides to build a monument to commemorate his Begum, Mumtaz Mahal. While  it uses a contemporary context, one that’stained with corruption, red tapism and bureaucracy  The play explores the construction in the light of these issues. With every delay and every bribe, the play reminds us of our reality, and even as it uses slapstick comedy and situational comedy to elicit laughs, it doesn’t lose its darker context.
