‘Jeevita Chellave’ | Lok Kala Manch, New Delhi |27th August 2017 | 7:00 PM
Vayam started off as the theatre society of Shivaji College, University of Delhi in 2006, when a handful of like-minded and creative students decided to form a dramatics society in their college. The society that was formed on the ideals of unity, togetherness and creativity, grew bigger and better by each passing year. Gradually, Vayam started making a mark on the DU theatre circuit by winning laurels and appreciation. Today, the organization has ventured into the sphere of performing arts and boasts of a strong foothold in Mumbai and Delhi with several professional performances under its credit.
With a total of 26 proscenium and street plays based on various social issues, that have won many accolades on competitive and non-competitive platforms across India including National School of Drama, National Centre for Performing Arts, Prithvi Theatre, Jana Natya Manch, Kamani, Siri fort, India Habitat Center, Shri Ram Centre, Sahitya Kala Parishad, FICCI Auditorium, Hindi Sahitya Academy (Indore), IIT-Delhi, IIT-Bombay, IIT-Kanpur, IIM-Ahmedabad and the like; Vayam is constantly growing. The society comprises of a group of hardworking, talented and dedicated individuals consisting of actors, directors, scriptwriters, technicians and working professionals.
‘The White Saree‘ is crafted in the most beautiful, daunting and hypnotising manner, giving away parts of the current reality. The truth of gender roles, identity, sexual urges and the prolonged female oppression and how people need to make some difficult choices to escape the judgments of the society. The play is carved to capture the daily struggles that women have to go through expressing their true feelings of subconsciousness. The drama is filled with anger, love, emotion, dilemma, reality and fiction. It is that essence of sexual expression and the desire to express it freely comes with the constant suppression and emotional discrepancies. As the protagonist struggles with emotional adherence along with the society’s antagonism that stands in the way of their inner motives we find her chocking onto her own desires.
The play engages the audience with dance and theatrical musical aura with jaw dropping plot, facial omissions, and the thrust to remotely claim a woman’s sexual urges and erotic fantasies through liberal expression rather than their lives running parallel to the alter ego which generates contrasting images of sexual motivation which are spurring to be satisfied which were otherwise hidden. The play finds the characters in a maze with suffocating lives inducing hindrance in their individual progression.
