About

Chorus Repertory Theatre (Manipur)
When We Dead Awaken
Directed by Ratan Thiyam
 
Selected for its universal human themes of death and resurrection, When We Dead Awaken directed by writer, director, and actor Ratan Thiyam puts an Eastern twist on Henrik Ibsen's final play of the same name. Chorus Repertory Theatre's production revolves around the buried symbolism in names and occupations. A sculptor who has grown cold to his wife is led to climb a great mountain by an intriguing woman. But the monolith proves to be too much for the sculptor in this enigmatic play that hints that when we wake up to our reality, there is little around to recognize. In this adaptation, scenes from the original play have been picked up and interpolated, without distorting the original idea and using unaltered dialogues from the original text. Performed in Manipuri with English surtitles. A free Explore the Arts discussion follows the performance on March 4.

Part of maximum INDIA.
