Thespo18 is here. Show Time at Prithvi Theatre
Having arrived in India with 530 rupees and a puppet, just a few weeks later I am a rich woman. Rich in ideas, friendships, kindness, laughter, not to mentioned the delicious food and teamed with incredible indian women and it is all these things that have been a part of creating 'Mujer'. Ladies and Gentlemen...we have a show and we are ready for an audience.
Squeezing the set and full company (we haven't had the full company for 2 days, as these talented women are in multiple shows across the city) into Quasar's (founding member of QTP/Thespo Theatre) house, it was a perfect and intimate final rehearsal. To my delight I even managed to get a full mug of tea without sugar, total bliss and my dentist will be pleased! This was also the perfect moment to share stories as a company and a really precise moment for me to notice the journey of each of the young women in the room over the period of just two weeks. A real pleasure, a moment that will stay with me and probably me favourite moment captured on camera.
At the famous Prtihvi Theatre a subsidiary of the Shri Prithviraj Kapoor Memorial Trust & Research Foundation the atmosphere is buzzing. There are writer, directors, performers and a fabulous team of Thespo volunteers beaming in their green Thespo18 Festival t-shirts. We are in Prithvi House, the studio space. The capacity in a standard Indian 'as many as we can possibly squeeze in' and the house is full!
