About the Show
Conceived, directed, and performed by Jyoti Dogra
Notes on Chai is a collection of snippets of everyday conversations interwoven with abstract sound explorations that, together, create a series of images and conversations simultaneously in the everyday world and at the edge of it, encouraging the spectator to attempt to relocate his/ her relationship with the quotidian.
"Jyoti Dogra’s brilliantly crafted performance piece, Notes on Chai, discovers the universal in the ordinary. It makes you melancholic, it makes you laugh at yourself and at memories and anecdotes that are instantly recognizable."
"A brilliantly conceived and executed act. In the true sense, an act that plays upon the excellence of the performer, giving secondary importance to everything else."
"It is a fantastic theatrical experience to watch the expressive power of human body to bring alive slices of life from a world familiar to us, intricate and pregnant with deeper meaning about human existence, such experimental pieces are rarely seen on the Delhi stage."
