Perch Theatre & The Alliance Française of Madras present a play
MONKEY AND THE MOBILE
Entry free and open to all ! Free passes available on eventjini.com
Summary : ‘Monkey and the Mobile’ uses the mobile phone and technology as a theme and looks at their impact on our lives through stories – some real, some imagined. Through everyday and unusual characters like a newly arrived migrant to the city, Etroverts , a family of Emoji’s and animals with identity crises, larger themes like identity, control and memory are explored. Conceived in a collaborative manner, the play uses a combination of the actor, image and music, with a focus on story telling that is simple and engaging.
This play premiered at the Alliance Francaise of Madras on October 31, 2015 and was subsequently staged in Adishakti, Pondicherry in November, 2015. In March this year it underwent substantial changes and was staged at Rangashankara, Bangalore. It is still evolving.
