Art

Play by Evam

Writer: Yasmina Reza

Director: Evam

Cast: Evam (Do not know the name of the entire cast and crew)

The play revolves around three middle-aged friends, Serge, a dermitologist, Marc, an aeronautical engineer and Yvan, a stationary vendor. The play starts off with Serge buying a work of art for a huge sum of money, which he describes as being “incredibly modern”. Marc doesn’t approve of it just as he doesn’t approve of anything “modern” and Yvan can’t make up his mind either way. A conflict of identities ensues and is the main theme of play. Conflict of identities.

“If I am who I am because I am who I am and you are who you are because you are who you are, then I am who I am and you are who you are. But, however, if I am who I am because you are who you are and you are who you are because I am who I am then I am not who I am and you are not who you are.”

The play deals with how identities emerge, how we relate ourselves with our times either by being part of it or by opposing it or by …

Well, I guess this is a very simplistic view of the play. The play deals with a whole lot of other things too, but I guess 1.5 hours is not enough to assimilate everything.

The best part is … its a comedy.

Evam is a young energetic group. The last time I watched them was when they were in Bangalore to play Double comedy – Monty Python and Hamlet. Had thoroughly enjoyed it. Art was also performed well. Initially, I felt a lack of energy in the actors. But slowly it kinda grows on to you and by the end of it everyone was having fun.

They are here tomorrow too. Do watch it. 29th october, 3:30 and 7:30 show, Rangashankara.

    I am amused 🙂
    Anyway, I wrote this post AFTER watching the play. I enjoyed the play very much. Trying to buy a copy of Yasmina Reza but looks like none of the local bookstores has it. Will need to order it online. Or is there some other way?
    Btw, you guys put up a good show.
