A unique stage adaptation of the 1920’s German silent horror film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, set inside a rundown warehouse space featuring distinctive on-stage elements won Best Stage Design for the director Deepan Sivaraman.


 About The Play


 The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a contemporary take on the 1920 film and emerged out of spatial experimentation with a focus on objects, some found and others made. It is a multi media performance in which the scenography and dramaturgy emerged together in an attempt to navigate through a rundown warehouse space where the production has been staged. The story of Holstenwall unfolds through multiple layers of visual narratives slowly peeling off, to keep the audiences at the edges of their seats. It tends towards an immersive experience for the spectators, and engages them through a visual language that is trying tobreak out of chronological narrative and place the spectator in a position to weave together the plot through a broken audio-visual narrative.

Cambridge University Press has just published Tanuja's book 'Nomadic Narratives: A history of mobility and identity in the Great Indian Desert.' It is based on her research that looks at the Thar "as a historical region shaped through the mobility of its inhabitants, who were warriors, pastoralists, traders, ascetics and bards, often in overlapping capacities, exchanging mobile wealth and equally mobile narratives."
