Drama Alert! Fridays: Ek Aur Kabeer & Dedh Inch Upar.

Friday, January 13th, 2017

For our Drama Alert! Fridays, we had two wonderful plays put up – Ek Aur Kabeer and Dedh Inch Upar. Here’s what these plays are about. Hope you catch them the next time they’re performed at QTube Cafe.

Ek Aur Kabeer

Ek Aur Kabeer is a one-man act essayed by talented actor Pradeep Singh. The hour-long presentation takes you through various stages in Sant Kabir’s life, thereby giving the viewer a better understanding of this great mystic’s life and teachings. The commendable performance of the lead actor does not escape your attention for he switches seamlessly from one character to the next, turning into a mohalla child one moment, a harsh Kabir critic the next and back into the calm, profound Kabir, all in a matter of minutes. His singing prowess enables him to interject the play with melodious songs which breathe life and meaning into various scenes. One also gets to listen to lyrical ‘Kabir ke dohes’ which are filled with wit and wisdom. The play focusses on certain key incidents in the saint’s life, incidents that impacted him greatly and shaped him into the person we know him to be today. So, although we are familiar with his philosophy on Hindu-Muslim relationships, the play helps us understand his views on the topic became as they were. Do attend this play if you’d like to know more about this great man’s life and treat yourself to his liberal, egalitarian teachings! To know when this play will be performed at QTube Café again, keep an eye on our Facebook page. It’ll also be performed at Sathaye College auditorium on the 17th of Jan, so book your tickets soon!

Stills from the play.

Dedh Inch Upar

The play narrates the story of a drunk man with a dark past. Between swigs of alcohol, he narrates his shocking story which is set in Nazi Germany and struggles to find answers to questions that have perplexed him for 15 years. At the start of the play, we think the protagonist (Vinar Singh Nath) to be just another drunk guy, that uncle you’ve seen several times before in bar’s and pubs, sitting alone and downing peg after peg. But as he relates his story through slurred speech to a patient stranger, we realize that he has quite a strange story to share. As he reveals that grave incident that changed his life forever, we find ourselves questioning our own relationships with our loved ones. Are they completely honest with us? Do we know absolutely everything about them, or is there somebody else who knows them better than we do? What would be more painful, losing them to death or discovering, after they’ve left us forever, that they’ve kept secrets from us, and not being able to confront them? This is a play that will entertain, excite and make you think about love and life, so don’t miss it.

Check our Facebook page to know when this play will be performed at QTube again.

5 Reasons why you must Audition for NSPA

Yes, we have decided to expand our artist base and so, are conducting auditions on the 28th of Jan, from 11 am – 3 pm at QTube Cafe, S.V. Road, Bandra.

To Register for the auditions: https://nspa.in/audition.php

audiions poster 1

Still hesitant to audition? Here are 5 reasons why you must! Hope these motivate you to go ahead and register for our auditions!

Been There, Done That

Auditions can be unnerving, because you’re conscious about the fact that someone is judging you and your talent. However, once you go through an audition, you’re likely to feel more confident and competitive and this will go a long way in helping you perform better the next time you have to prepare for one. Also, at an audition, you’re exposed to performances from different artists, helping you gauge you’re abilities and skills better. You may also be lucky enough to forge a new friendship that could result in a fruitful collaboration in the future!

On-board NSPA!

Once you get selected that is. But, if you do, you become an NSPA artist and being one surely has its perks. You get a fixed number of slots each month, guaranteeing you the opportunity of performing at various public locations. You also get a chance to perform at big stage events we bag. Apart from this, there are additional benefits you’re sure to enjoy, like being featured on our website and social media channels and getting videos of your performance shot and shared on our YouTube channel.

It’s not Just about Playing & Performing

The NSPA is involved in several art-related activities and programs. We not only have street and stage performances, but we also conduct community art programs, art literacy programs and training sessions for our artists. So, you’ll get a chance to try your hand out at all these activities and therefore, gain greater exposure and practice!

Exposure + Kickass collabs = Growth

At the NSPA, we strive for excellence and urge our artists too to constantly grow and evolve. For those in need of training, we organize training workshops. For those interested in trying out new forms, we give them a chance to collaborate with other artists so that they get a chance to experiment and learn something new. Once a part of NSPA, all are opportunities and resources are thrown open to you, so you’re sure to get all the backing and support you require to make a name for yourself.

Money (because one can’t live on Love & Fresh Air)

We don’t expect you to perform for free, after all, we all have bills to pay and cheques to write. So, we pay our artists a stipulated sum as remuneration for their efforts. This way, our artists get to do what they love and are good at without having to worry about a big, empty hole forming in their pockets. Well, you too can join us and use your talents to earn some money!

So, what are you waiting for? Come for our auditions and get your talented friends and acquaintances along as well.
