Play Summary

‘Gang of Girls’ has several stories about one single matter – ‘being a girl’.
How she takes birth, how she grows up, and how she unfortunately gets raped; the mystery and complexities of a girl turning into a woman; and the fear, fantasies and desires of being a woman.
The play is a celebration of women’s sexuality and the condemnation of its violation. An artistic response by a group of performers to the gang rape incidents like Nirbhaya rape case, domestic violence, suppression of women or any other form of violence against women.

However, the play is not a tragic one, rather it is a humorous journey explored through an amalgamation of various dance forms such as Bharatnatyam, Contemporary, Hula-Hoop, and Hip-Hop. The hilarious yet heart touching essays from ‘The Vagina Monologues’, the hard hitting poetry of Taslima Nasrin, and the ugly realities of this male dominated society give flesh to the performance.

The play includes Saharan’s hip hop and Sukhmani Lamba’s contemporary movements to Rajni Ramachandran’s hula hoop performances, Chhau by Shaurya Shankar, Tapasya Dasgupta’s violin and clowning and Senalika Bhasin’s Bharatanatyam.

Directed by – Happy Ranajit , an alumnus of the National School of Drama and winner of the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards.
