What’s Up Mumbai: Aasakta Kalamanch, Pune's Mathemagician
The play is directed by Dr. Gowri Ramnarayan
This solo act by Ipshita Chakraborty Singh is set in 500 CE Babylon, the commercial centre of the ancient world. Mathemagician, is a compelling study in contrasts and focuses on the inescapable humanity of a subject which might otherwise be an epic story. Never quite impotent, but never entirely puissant, Nikor is forced to chart a careful course, even as he deals with issues of isolation, lost love, helplessness and compromise.
