Here’s the article that I wrote about Evam in Metblogs:

"Art" by Evam at Ranga Shankara

With their production of “Art”, Evam, the theatre group from Chennai whom many Bangaloreans have learnt to think of as their own, proved conclusively that they possess tremendous talent.

“Art” is described in their brochure as “serious comedy”. Marc, Yvan and Serge are three friends; Serge buys a work of art… a painting of white stripes and a white diagonal on a white background. This disturbs Marc profoundly, and he is unable to even stomach the thought of Serge wanting to buy it, or the fact of Yvan’s liking it.

Slowly, as their conversations about the paintings develop, layers of thoughts and opinions, and revelations, begin to appear. The serious and the comic march side by side as the plot unfolds


Five Point Someone by Evam at Ranga Shankara

The review in two words? …the two words are…..excellent production.

Now for some more words….

At Ranga Shankara, I was in the minority on two counts: one, I was probably the only one not to have seen this production earlier at Chowdiah Memorial Hall…and more importantly, I was, very probably, the only one not to have read the book, “Five Point Someone”, earlier.

I had missed out on reading this book earlier (a slight aversion to “IIT lit”!) and took a considered decision not to read the book before seeing the play, and I think it was a good decision for me. The plot, the characters, the denouement, were all fresh and new to me.

Whatever the genre of the play, Evam produces a well-wrapped package. Sunil Vishnu came up on stage and talked about the play, mentioning that Evam had been around for four years, 14 plays, and this was the 200th performance by them. He stressed that the 50th, 150th, and now the 200th performance were all at their favourite theatre space, Ranga Shankara.
