An NCPA Presentation
Born in 1999, Thespo began as an initiative to showcase and celebrate the best youth theatre in India with an evening of 3 one-act plays. It has now grown to be a year round movement with workshops & performances that eventually culminates in a week-long youth theatre festival every December in Bombay. All the participants at Thespo have to be under 25 years of age. It is a platform for any and every young person under 25 who is interested in any and all aspects of theatre. Except for the age limit, Thespo firmly believes in including youth from all parts of the world, all fields, all language groups and all art forms who share a love for theatre.
What happens to the human mind in isolation? Bhanvar is the story of a lonely night watchman’s never ending last shift. As Bhanvar Singh stands guard outside an empty factory for a shift that only gets longer, his principle of never sleeping on the job starts to affect his mental faculty. As the play progresses, the line between real and hallucinations starts to fade, leaving a character study of a simple man from a remote village trying and failing at dreaming big.
