Wild Dogs Under My Skirt
My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak
A Silo Theatre commission.
Presented in collaboration with Q Theatre.
Welcome to the City of Dreams: Bombay, the height of the 1970s. Legendary Bollywood director Rakesh Ramsey has died in the middle of shooting his latest film, Dust of the Delhi Plains, an epic desi western with all the trappings: magnificent landscapes, gunfights on horseback, saloon bars and bounty-hunters.
Ramsey’s two children, Roshan and Kamala, are forced into the director’s chair. But they’ve inherited a disaster: the crew’s unhappy, the money’s all gone and the big Bollywood star is holding the production hostage. Can Roshan and Kamala bring their father’s dying dream to the big screen, or is Dust of the Delhi Plains as cursed as everyone says?
Created by visionary theatre-maker Ahi Karunaharan (A Fine Balance, Tea, Swabhoomi: Borrowed Earth), My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak is a joyous and immersive night at the theatre filled with sibling showdowns, divas, dancing and pure movie-making magic.
Suitable for ages 10 and over.
With support from The Asia New Zealand Foundation.
