ECTA Presents

Shikhandi

(A one person play in English)

Written by Sudipta Bhawmik

Directed by Suman Mukhopadhyay

Performed by Sudipta Majumdar

 

The play is set on the debris of war—the toxic waste of humanity accumulated from Mahabharata’s epic war of Kurukshetra to today’s Ukraine. The protagonist and the solo performer frets and wallows in the quandary of having a female body and the desire to escape it. One man’s sexual abuse of a woman breeds multiple histories of paternity and its power: the cruelty and arrogance across the frenetic time. Shikhandi explores a vast domain of struggles of anguished women against the toxic masculinity and deep anxieties of queer existence.
