No Rest in the Kingdom, a devised, physical theatre performance, came out of the need to have a conversation about the daily misogynies we are implicit in perpetrating. A comedy with music and movement, in which the performer plays four characters – two male, one female, and one feline, NRITK draws from the lives of urban characters who speak similar languages of consumerism and technology. Young and old men and women who are themselves baffled at this ‘gender question’ often find themselves walking on thin ice, oblivious, and sometimes very aware of the dangerous biases they hold. The laughter often received is both ludicrous and uncomfortable — oftentimes knowing — that the outrageous world of inequities we inhabit is very much within us.

The show has been invited to perform at the Remembering Veenapani Festival at Adishakti Theatre.

Written, directed and performed by Deepika Arwind.

For ages 13+
