No Rest in the Kingdom
No Rest in the Kingdom is a devised theatre work by Deepika Arwind that deals with the daily hilariousness and annoyances of being a woman in this country, and almost anywhere.
This physical theatre performance came out of the need to have a conversation about the daily misogynies we are implicit in perpetrating. A comedy with music and movement, in which the performer plays four characters - two male, one female, and one feline, NRITK 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.
