Last night – magic happened! Audrey, Hilary, Tapasya and two more local clowns, Ashwath and Kalyan, came together and created a show! The opportunity for collaboration came about when Ashwath joined Moshe, CWB USA’s founder, at a workshop in Germany. Ashwath now has a theatre company, Theatre Garage, and Tapasya and Kalyan are core members. Over the weekend, Hilary and Audrey provided a workshop for several of the company members along with other artists, educators and professionals from around Delhi. In reality, it was not just last night that magic happened, but over the course of several weeks/months of communication, a weekend workshop and true interest and enthusiasm, these five artists came together to create an incredible show!
After the show many of the boys came to show off their own skills, handstands, contortions and odd body tricks. The first show, the final show with the Saalam Baalak Trust, was filled with squeals of laughter from teenage boys and their teachers at the DMRC center. Now a cast of five, the group performed on the wide open rooftop of the center, just above the dorm rooms. The show was high energy, combining Hindi and English, ranging from skilled magic to goofy skits involving bananas and autos.
