Mobius Strip

Join the ends of a piece of sticky tape with a single twist and two surfaces and two edges turn into a remarkable loop with a single surface and a single edge, a Mobius Strip. The play starts with Manashi and Aman in a lazy weekend chat in their suburban US living room. Before the evening party, Aman insists on visiting the Mobius Strip cafe, which holds the clue to his unfinished fantasy, and his abrupt departure leaves Manashi in tears. At the cafe, we meet the same two characters in Kolkata struggling with their personal and political dilemmas in a rapidly globalizing society. Snapshots of contemporary Aman-Manashi twist and warp with space and time, and distinct surfaces and edges blur, as in a Mobius Strip. (Runtime: 40 minutes)

A pet snake, a holy man, a reporter, an opinionated urbanite, a curse, a strange night and a bizarre disappearance…..Satyajit Ray’s classic tale of mystery and mystics is adapted for stage against a contemporary backdrop. Here modern ideas of progress clash with indigenous beliefs, imposed authority spawns subversion, and the conclusion is left open-ended. (Runtime: 35 minutes)
