Ngan Hiar Sha Wah (I’m going down to the River) is a digital theatre performance using elements of storytelling to unfold the narrative of a heavily polluted river, ka Wah Umkhrah, and its dying tributaries flowing through the city of Shillong in Meghalaya. Through the performance of memory using poetry, words, sounds and musical compositions including ki phawar and connecting these to visual expression, we have compiled a series of chapters taking the audience on a journey of the past, the blurred lines of memory, the present and the liminal spaces of lost narratives. An initiative of Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan New Delhi, it is presented by Lapdiang A Syiem and a team of other artists. From August 9-13. Prior registration required. Write to Nidhi.Kol@goethe.de to register.

It is presented by Delhi-ased Kaivalya Plays. On August 14 and 15, 6 pm, 7 pm and 10 pm. Contact: http://www.kaivalyaplays.org/lifeline9999
