Director: Tripurari Sharma
Duration: 1 Hour 10 Minutes
The male actor must give up his place where the woman steps on the stage to stake her claim to the space hitherto denied to her. Reality invades the notional, non real and the crafted world of image. An era is started in to the truth and inevitability of its closure. The struggle to perpetuate its creative span weaves a yarn of many shades. Transience prevails and each one of us must yield, almost as if to the compulsion of death as it which overtakes life in the ultimate chain of recycle. Yet undeniably the pain of displacement is real. Roop Aroop is about that moment that shifts a fleeting span of creative glimpse that nevertheless leaves its mark on times that ensue. It was the team from my earlier play Rangdhuli that inspired and lead to the creation of Roop Aroop.
