A team of 70, mostly students, aged between 15 to 25, will stage Dear Delhi, a dance production at the Kamani Auditorium on July 27 and 28. The production uses multiple dance forms and music styles which include: jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, Latino, ballroom and classical Indian, to weave in a number of short stories that attempt to interpret how Delhi falls in and out of love.
It’s organised by Yellow Brick Road, an ensemble of young theatre enthusiasts, who last year staged Razzle Dazzle, a musical production that wove three popular fairytales — Cindrella, Snow White and Rumpelstiltskin — with a humorous interpretation.
This year, they plan to carve out a slice out of life in the capital, whether it is the Metro, school and campus life, hanging out at Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place or Paharganj, parks and gardens or the traffic jams. “There’s something for everyone in the audience,” says Nitya Vaishnavi Singh of the project. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a student, part of the corporate world, middle class working person, single woman, homosexual or a car parking attendant. Everyone has felt love in some form or the other.” The play is a celebration of love in the city, whether you’re from it or not.
Kamani Auditorium, Copernicus Marg, July 27- 28, 7 pm.
