Gobhi ke Patte ki Chutney at Lamakaan
Lamakaan Programming Team is presenting a solo performance, ‘Gobhi ke Patte ki Chutney,’ by Zeeshan Hasan Akhtar’s on December 23 on its premises at 7:30 pm. The performance is a quiet meditation on what it means to be a Muslim in India. Starting with the founding moment of post-Independence communal violence that contributed to inauguration of the Hindutva project, the Bhagalpur riots in Bihar in 1989, without mentioning the place or the forces behind the violence, Akhtar builds a menacing and moving account of a subjectivity formed in the crucible of communal violence. 

‘GobhikePatteki Chutney’ is a subtle and deeply disturbing account of the more primal components of human subjectivity told in a theatrical language that eschews spectacle and settles for a record of the tremors of a heartbeat.


What: ‘Gobhi ke Patte ki Chutney’
Where: Lamakaan
When: December 23 at 7:30pm
