    THEATRE - Old World Theatre Festival 2019. Head 2 Head (Eng, Kannada with Eng subtitles/65 mins). Dir. Shabari Rao. Group: The Big Fat Company. “Am I a good actor even though I am fat?”, “How does being in this body shape me as an actor?” “Did Shakespeare say Hamlet was lean?” In search of answers to these questions, The Big Fat Company plays with ‘Hayavadana’ and has come up with Head 2 Head, a unique devised theatre performance. By using sections of the iconic Kannada play by Girish Karnad, it interrogates identity and archetypes, and the much-vaunted mind-body (dis)connection. An important question for actors with large bodies who deal with this quandary on a daily basis is: Where does identity lie: head or body? Or both?

Conductor: Herbert von Karajan. Sunit Tandon introduces a studio film of Puccini’s most popular and quintessentially ‘romantic’ opera about a group of starving artists trying to survive in 1830s Paris, including a seamstress, Mimi and the would-be playwright, Rodolfo, whom she loves. La Boheme virtually defines the term ‘romantic’ and Zeffirelli’s productions of it for major opera houses of the world were a benchmark of their time.
