Sandbox Collective presents
No Rest in the Kingdom
Sunday, April 8
Entry: INR 400 (Inclusive of 150 cover)
Tickets on BookMyShow.
No Rest in the Kingdom, a devised, physical theatre performance, came out of the need to have a conversation about the daily misogynies we are complicit in perpetrating.
A comedy with music and movement, in which the performer plays four characters - two male, one female, and one feline, No Rest In The Kingdom draws from the lives of urban characters who speak similar languages of consumerism and technology.
Young and old men and women who are themselves baffled at this ‘gender question’ often find themselves walking on thin ice, oblivious, and sometimes very aware of the dangerous biases they hold. The laughter often received is both ludicrous and uncomfortable — oftentimes knowing — that the outrageous world of inequities we inhabit is very much within us.
