LONG DIS­TANCE

India Today - - GLOSSARY -

Look­ing at the past through a frac­tured mir­ror is al­ways un­set­tling. Mind-walk­ing, a the­atre col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween UK’S Band­bazi Pro­duc­tions and the Mum­bai-based Q The­atre Pro­duc­tions ( QTP) which made its In­dia de­but at the Delhi In­ter­na­tional Arts Fes­ti­val on Novem­ber 8, takes a re­fresh­ing look at the is­sue of im­mi­gra­tion and racial ten­sions. Scripted by the ac­claimed Bri­tish-in­dian play­wright Tanika Gupta, 47, the play uses aerial danc­ing and trapeze tricks as a metaphor to ex­plain an In­dian man’s mind un­rav­el­ling with age in the UK.
