Ten-Fold Theatre

Short and Sweet, the world`s largest 10-minute theatre festival, showcased ten different, bite-sized theatrical treats at the Epicentre on Saturday, 8th December

Fast, fresh and entertaining, the plays had something for everyone.  The cast of ‘2922-The Ballad of Vedant Saafi’, ‘Dickheads’ and ‘Chairpersons’ stomped and skipped through angular choreography, and thrilled the audiences to gasps and laughter. Their relentless energy left you breathless and exhilarated. The incisive lyrics were a perfect fit.

The emotional succour came in ‘A Different Client’ and ‘Nine Types of Ice’. The understanding father and the grieving mother were played with great depth and nuance.  Special mention of Avantika Tomar, for her brilliant portrayal of a mother’s heartbreak – when she hears her daughter’ has been killed in an accident. 

‘Chup’, ‘Khol Do’, ‘The Evil Effects of Smoking’, ‘Solitary Creeper’, and ‘Who’s the Boss’ – from the sour to the celebratory, the wry to the wrenching – were  all delicious. But it was the tender ruefulness of the show’s life lesson that lingered.

A lot can happen in ten minutes.
