A ONE-HIJRA STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW
Directed by M. Bevin O’Gara
THE CHRONICLES OF KALKI
Directed by M. Bevin O’Gara
Directed by Summer L. Williams
Loosely inspired by the Hindu trinity of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the protector, and Shiva the destroyer, THE DISPLACED HINDU GODS TRILOGY posits that deities dwell among us in the bodies of the most unexpected underdogs. Identity, post-colonialism, puberty, and love are re-mythologized as history is made new in these three hilarious and heartbreaking coming of age stories.
BRAHMAN/I: A ONE HIJRA STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW:
Grab a drink and prepare for the comedic stylings of Brahman... uh... Brahmani... Brahman/i! Get on board as "B" takes on nosy Indian aunties, teenage cliques, ancient Hindu sculpture porn, and 100 years of colonial history in this stand-up-act-meets-play about radical acts of self-creation.
THE CHRONICLES OF KALKI:
It's raining cats and dogs... and the final avatar of Vishnu? Totally badass Kalki mysteriously springs into the mean girl world of high school in this comic-book-infused girl gang thriller.
Shiv, named for the Destroyer God, sails the cosmic ocean on a makeshift raft piled high with the psychic residue of post-colonialism. Drawn by distant radio signals, she navigates the poetry of her past and the possibilities of love in a soaring, fantastical journey about the destruction that leads to rebirth.
BRAHMAN/I is both hilarious and deeply moving in its exploration of gender, identity, and meddling family members. This play gives voice to all those who have embraced their outsider status and who now play by their own rules. Company One Theatre is thrilled to further our relationship with Aditi Brennan Kapil (LOVE PERSON) with this exciting and provocative trilogy of plays based on the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.
THE CHRONICLES OF KALKI: This thrilling, fast paced play will leave you questioning the line between reality and the supernatural. What are high schoolers capable of summoning? And who exactly is Kalki anyway? Company One Theatre is thrilled to further our relationship with Aditi Brennan Kapil (LOVE PERSON) with this exciting and provocative trilogy of plays based on the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.
SHIV: Board your time-traveling mattress and come sail across the cosmic ocean with us! SHIV explores the nature of family, immigration, and what one must do to truly progress. Company One Theatre is thrilled to further our relationship with Aditi Brennan Kapil (LOVE PERSON) with this exciting and provocative trilogy of plays based on the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.
