Showcasing the conflict between the sub conscious mind and the outward behaviour, the Cineaste group will be performing their critically acclaimed play Kirdaar. The play tries to establish the behavioral patterns of human nature, which keeps on absorbing feelings of grief, happiness, and anger subconsciously and this absorption is reflected in actions which create contradictions with one's own nature
The story unfolds after two characters come out of a book and confront it's writer with their tragedies and misrepresentations. The play written in a mixture of english and hindi, takes an interesting turn when these characters do not agree with the way they have been written. Starring Deep Singh, Rishi Sharma, Komal Gupta, Radha Bhatt, Shiv Dutt and Shubham the play is written and directed by Devesh Nigam.
The Cineaste group has come up with 15 stage productions along with three critically acclaimed short films. The group has created a niche for itself in a short span of time and they are known for their experimental and innovative approach in theatre.
Director Devesh Nigam has so far written nine plays and directed 15 productions. He has received critical acclaims for his work which includes Kafan, Moteram ka Satyagrah, Hawalaat, Bahut Bada Sawal, 5 Kahaniyan, among others. He believes that playwrights should respond to their urban realities while willing to experiment with style and narrative.
