Deepika Arwind No Rest
Saturday 02 December 2017
18:00 to 18:45
The Cinema

This devised, physical theatre performance came out of the need to have a conversation about the daily misogynies we are implicit in perpetrating. A comedy in which the performer plays four characters – two male, one female, and one feline, No Rest in the Kingdom draws from the lives of urban characters who speak similar languages of consumerism and technology. Young and old men and women who are themselves baffled at this ‘gender question’ often find themselves walking on thin ice, oblivious, and sometimes very aware of the dangerous biases they hold. The resulting laughter is both ludicrous and uncomfortable, often knowing that the outrageous world of inequities we inhabit is very much within us.
