Can you imagine living a day in the dark when there is so much to see in the world? While the thought in itself might make you flinch, 17-year-old Aneesha Madhok has portrayed the subject through her play — Aliza Free.

The play is a tragic dance drama that is set in Jerusalem of the 1950s, and has a lot of Israeli influence. “What inspired me to write this script is that India is the home to the world’s largest number of blind people and creating awareness about them is essential,” says Madhok.

The production aims at not only contributing financially but also committing to help at least one visually impaired person. Madhok, who is the youngest team, member says, “It’s not a remake of any play done before. Everyone believed in my script and I’m lucky to have a great cast.”

The one act play, which is presented by El Tamim Productions, has been choreographed by Fernando Aguilera, who is a renowned ballet dancer.
