Once upon a time
A famous bard famously said
"All the worlds a stage And all men and women merely players….."
Playing their roles in this costume drama of life
Creating the perception, illusion and magic or dream-like
Theater metamorphing into a surreal reality.
The collection is inspired by The Great Indian Tamasha (Colorful, Irreverent Indian Folk, Music and Dance Theater) Especially borrowing elements from the puppet theater of Rajasthan.
The collection, like popular folk theater, plays heavily on the concept of perception. This idea of theater and perception are rendered through prints and embroideries inspired from the famous ink blot test.
