This weekend, don’t miss actor Mallika Taneja’s play, which has been fueling discussion about its use of nudity to critique biases about women’s safety. A gifted 10th grader comes out with her first solo art show. And a lot more drama, art and comedy await you this week.
An art exhibition called Splassh is here to usher in a colourful weekend in Ahmedabad. Next week, meanwhile, will play host to the talents of 10th grader Muskaan Shah, a young artist with a gift for expressing herself through colours, in her first solo show Evolving Enigma.
But a lot is happening in the city besides visual arts too, in the coming days. Delhi-based actor Mallika Taneja will be raising questions about women’s safety through her drama Thoda Dhyaan Se (Be Careful), a bold play that’s being discussed for its use of on-stage semi-nudity for asking probing questions. Tanariri, a Gujarati play, will narrate a historical story between two sisters, while Kamlesh Acharya’s The Promise of Heaven is a satirical work about two terrorists out on a mission. Drama lovers can also look forward to experimental play Dastan-E-Narak at Ouroboros.

Gujarati critic and editor Anantrai Raval, known by his pen name Shaunak, is the inspiration for our 165th Ahmedabad Art Weekly. Before joining the government as a director of a language department, Raval taught at various academic institutions and colleges. He edited the works of multiple authors, including legends like Botadkar, Ramanlal Desai, Batubhai Umarvadiya and Narsinh Mehta. As a translator, Raval translated novels of Leo Tolstoy, and as an author, he drafted Aaharvigyan with J. D. Pathak and short stories for his book Chaa Ghar. The Amreli-born scholar was honoured with Ranjitram Suvarna Chandrak, Narmad Chandrak and, eventually, the Sahitya Akademi Award for his work of literary criticism, Taratamya.
