Theatre goes solo
Teamwork brings to India a unique theatrical experience, inspired from the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Presenting ‘Going Solo’ — India’ first and only International Solo Theatre Festival that brings to the stages of Delhi award-winning and riveting one-person acts, showcasing the magic of theatre in its essence.

After the Capital, this first of its kind festival with three solo productions will be performed in Bangalore and Mumbai - Churchill by Pip Utton  (UK), Adolf by Pip Utton (UK) and At The Edge by Jailoshini Naidoo (South Africa).

Pip Utton began writing and performing one man shows sixteen years ago. Since then he has won acclaim and awards throughout the world and has established a reputation as one of the leading writers and performers of solo theatre. Pip writes, produces and tours easily staged, accessible text based drama that engages directly with the audience. He aims not only to entertain but also to stimulate the mind.

Riveting is an overused adjective, but when Jailoshini Naidoo steps on stage, in the first of the stories focusing on a melee of diverse characters drawn from the 40’s/ 50’s Cato Manor tapestry. Popular television presenter in South Africa, she has appeared in numerous stage productions including Jungle Book, This Black Woman, the critically acclaimed one-hander 1949 in which she played 38 characters among others. The Delhi chapter kicked off from 15 October with shows of At the Edge and Adolf. Next day had shows of Churchill and At the Edge. We say, don’t miss this one!
