Theatremaker Abhishek Thapar has a story to tell – an arresting tale that spans three generations. A little boy dresses up as a local superhero, a family loses their home, and bloody conflict unfolds in an Indian province. Switching between the past and the present, Abhishek brings old memories to life using intricate set models and tactile imagery, in a movingly told narrative that captures the flavours he has brought with him from his grandfather’s kitchen.
My Home at the Intersection seamlessly interweaves true stories of family heritage with Punjab’s contradictory social history since the 1980s.
The stories are highly engaging and make you feel like sitting at the table with his family Theaterkrant
