A funny thing called war at Kyra

“Serious minds at peace” behind “A Funny Thing called War”.

Fun people are working seriously to put together their *t-h-i-r-d* production of “A Funny Thing Called War”.

“This is the third time; I hope good luck lies in odd numbers. . . There is divinity in odd numbers, either in nativity, chance or death.”

Don’t give me that look. Ofcourse, I did not come up with that line. That’s Sire William Shakespeare for you.

Now here is a chance for me to boast that the cast and crew of Tahatto has grown quite a bit beyond famous quotes, numerology, luck, speculation and all that. The play has won many hearts and has only gotten better. Thanks to all those who came to see the play and also gave us valuable feedback.

We are not as nervous as we were at our first production but the butterflies in the stomach don’t go away that fast and start fluttering everytime we near a production. That ‘feeling’ kind of has begun to show its traces. It feels sweeter though. :-)

While I am the most absent-minded and lost of the Tahatto lot (It could be a compliment, for long I thought! Wow – that rhymes!); the entire crew is all Continue reading

See you there!!

See you. :)

I meant to comment something funny on Vaisakh’s post below but oflate I have not been able to handle humour too well for it is thrown back at me in huge groups. (LOL). So, I will only continue to Gossip with you and release my eternal wit.

So, permit me to unveil those little secrets for your Gossiping pleasure :

Secret 1:

I love Vaisakh alias Mul-chetta. There is an important reason for that. He belongs to the Donald Duck family. Relax. Relax. Relax. He is the only ‘human’ nephew of Mr. Donald. His secret name is Vui. You must listen to all those sweet funny sounds he makes and you will swear by what I just said. How I love those sounds. They can melt you. Let alone theatre, can be a great hit at Walt Disney !

Secret 2:

There is a factual correction in Vaisakh’s Post : The only person whose leg gets ever pulled is “me”. Rest of them pull each others’ legs – literally. See, that even rhymes !. What more proof do you want, Poets !

Secret 3:

I am really short of time and I must leave you with some food for thought. You know the breaking news: We are only a day away from our first production – “A Funny Thing Called War”

BUT

Do you know the Top 3 reasons why you should come to watch us this Saturday?

No? (Whaaat? !)

Read on then.

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

Tahatto Behind the Scenes – A Small background of how AFTCW happened!

In this blog I will take you through the decisions we made before we decided to stage a play.

Tahatto as a group is made of people from all walks of life, advertising, sales, marketing, writing, editing, fashion designing, event management,  students and the inevitable IT. Being the hyper-energetic group that we are, we instantly started off trying to create something that we could perform for anyone who was willing to be a guinea pig. We dabbled with the idea of street plays for a while. This is mostly because we were not sure if we could commit to work towards a full stage production.

Ideas, brainwaves, plots and instances overflowed, but it was truly difficult to get 30 people to take time off from the daily professional grind and create a 20 min play. Yes, it sounds lame but it’s true. The silver lining was that we loved being with each other so much, we never lost hope.
