TIFA Working Studios is thrilled to announce that we are hosting a documentary theatre performance ‘Lady Anandi’ by Anuja Gosalkar on the 28th of July at 7 pm. It is the story of a female actor, Lady F, who is haunted by the ghost of her great grandfather—a female impersonator in late 19th C Marathi theatre— every time she goes up on stage, and her love for moustaches. Using a series of photographs, anecdotes and fiction, Ghosalkar weaves through time periods to find her great grandfather. Lady Anandi has been performed as a work-in-progress across India and debuted in Sweden. The performance is based on extensive research and is an exploration of a personal archive. It brings together elements like performance, history, early photography and gender. The text was written during Anuja’s month-long residency at Art Lab Gnesta, Sweden. It is being presented at that moment when research ends and performance begins. This is as an unfinished piece— created as an active exploration that evolves with its audience. It aims to draw the Lady Anandi audience’s attention to the process of making work rather than presenting a finished product. In the absence of a
director, the audience, take on that role. Therefore, the Q&A at the end of the show is an integral part of the performance.
29th July – 30th July (4 pm – 6:30 pm)
This workshop will commence a day after the performance for 2 – 3 days depending on the number of participants. This will be an interactive workshop between Anuja Gosalkar and the participants, where they bring objects from their family, or stories or photos, videos and they will end the the workshop with a short presentation for their family & friends.
The event is on the 28th of July at 7pm, it is a ticketed event for Rs. 300. Tickets available on: https://insider.in/lady-anandi-july28-2017/event
