We are taking bigger BABY steps :)

It is nearly a year from the first time we uttered this unique word “Tahatto”.  Strangely, it did not seem weird right from the first time. This year has taught me a lot of things and it is one of those years when every month has something eventful happening.

The initial months for ‘Tahatto’ were filled with fun filled coffee sessions with lot of planning as to where do we spend this new found energy and talent? How do we let the world know that here are a bunch of MAD kids who will fill your room with their laughter and cheer.

Right from timely, unending birthday mail chains to the recent extra-long mail chain for a canceled trip, our mail box history is the proof to the effort each of us has put in to help the group survive. Now,  it is a well-oiled machine or rather a bee-hive, with some work happening all the time and being busy is just another part of our day.

With so much introduction, don’t wonder what the topic would be… its just a proclamation of Continue reading

While At It – 10th Oct, AFTCW (Behind The Stage ;))

What an experience was it – amazing.

Almost feels like some illusion –

Until few months back – none of us knew any of us existed – well say almost.

If I put it personally I did not know any of you – Prashanth, lakshmi, Vijay, Badri, Vaisakh, Piyush, Vikram . .  hmnn and almost any of us, who were seen so closely together – trying to put up the show together – the group together – our first ever play – “A FUNNY THING CALLED WAR” by Tahatto.

It is indeed very fascinating how we did come up – striving for the same goal despite of being from all sorts of different background, history, experiences, language, colleges or organizations, passion and drive.

Finally 10th Oct arrived and so did we at the Opus to premiere our play. And this was the first time – I was actually involved in doing some serious production and back stage work. And it was very exciting and amazing. Am glad and very pleased that the already existing group was so open and acceptive.

Well, all of us have done our bits of love you’s and thank you’s and this and that. How ever there were some cutest moments which got captured into my mind/brain (ok don’t laugh when I say brains for my self hehehe). So this was while the Play was on.

Some of the most precious, important and sweetest actions being done or said by the some of us behind the stage,.. which apparently I noticed …and am Continue reading

Thank You ! :-*

History shall mark this day. With great effort, I have decided to stray from “Gossiping”. Oh ! Don’t be so sad. I thought you knew me a little. This resolution will last “only” until mid-night today. The Gossip Column can never die. Trust me. C’mon now, s-m-i-l-e ! Great! That’s like a true gossip follower.

This post is just a short note to say “Thank You”.

Thanks to all the wonderful (and wise) people who considered us and made it to our first show on 10th Oct. You were not only considerate but open to laughter. Imagine having an audience too critical with their own lives or us or conscious of developing laugh lines or acknowledging humor only within them or simply too rigid to happiness or a good laugh.

You were just the opposite: Open. Human. Appreciative. Happy.

You all were a dream audience!

Like ghosts in darkness and peeping from the little corners of backstage, we were watching your lit faces and reactions all the time. We hugged each other at your first smile. We jumped in merry on your first big laughter. You all smiled, chuckled and Continue reading

Prepare to attack..!

Well, three days left for the show and I would be kidding myself if I said am not nervous.

We have put in a lot into this. The crew has been cut off from friends and family for the better part of the last 3 months. Some no longer get dinner at home. Others carry car-loads of junk related to the production. Some busy shifting houses, while others had exams. There were (are) deadlines at work and hey – one can’t afford to lag behind there of all things.

But boy o boy did we have fun! We ate…drank…ate more…made merry…pulled each others leg (sometimes literally!)…ate still more…crashed all over Bangalore…and more….

And so here we are…maiden production…good to go…and am nervous…

The truth is, personally, 3 months back there wasn’t the slightest Continue reading

Welcome to the ‘Gossip’ column of Tahatto

A blog dedicated to Theatre! Is it not partly living a wish? I am so glad that Tahatto is born.

Since a nice maiden script is out, I now feel permitted to place my ramblings in the lap of this blog. YAY!

So, let’s gossip !

The cast of AFTCW was to meet up last evening at 20:00hrs sharp. And guess who amongst all made it on time? Ofcourse ‘Me’ ! Pat, pat. Oh, thanks for the standing applause. You may now park your tushies on your respective seats again and remain alert to what I have to say next. Thank you.

Soon thereafter, Vijay arrived. I noticed that Vijay – the hero of AFTCW had a new hair-cut. Note the emphasis. But why? Now that calls for serious speculation and my first Gossip give-away to you. We chatted for a while and laughed at some incidents; the origins of which lay in the theatre fraternity. We also attempted to figure out why some actors can’t help projecting pendulumic head movements on stage ! Continue reading

A Funny Thing Called War – The First Blog

“A Funny Thing Called War” is our journey from theater lovers as an audience to actual magicians on stage (or so I hope we grow to become).

Theater has always been an interesting medium of entertainment to all in Tahatto, even before we became Tahatto. But Evam changed the whole perspective and got us hooked on to theater performance and of course them.
