Vayam started off as the theatre society of Shivaji College, the 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 many laurels and praises. Today, the organization has ventured into the era of performing arts and boasts of a strong foothold in Mumbai and Delhi with several professional performances to 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, Sirifort, 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. Our society comprises of a group of hardworking, talented and driven individuals consisting of actors, directors, scriptwriters, technicians and working professionals.
“Jeevita Chellave” (The cost of ‘Living‘), is based on Arundhati Roy’s novel – ‘The God of Small Things’. The play sheds light on the tragic events that take place in the Ipe family due to the insecurities of two Siamese twins – Estha and Rahel. The play also focuses on their mother Ammu, who being a bold rebellious woman finds it difficult to adjust to the society and even her own family, who are disgusted at her actions and decision of leaving her husband and returning to her maternal house. The disgust heightens when the family discovers her love affair with an untouchable – a Paravan, Velutha. It majorly revolves around the breaking of love laws laid by society, and its devastating effects on the innocent descendants of the family – Estha and Rahel, who end up breaking the laws themselves.
We have collaborated with the NGO, ‘TOY BANK’, that supports & promotes the cause of donating toys, books, bags etc. to the underprivileged children in the society. As part of this partnership, toys, books, bags, games, stationery etc. would be collected from the audience at the venue and handed over to the NGO for the underprivileged children
