WIP Mar’18

We did our first sharing in March 2018 at ODDBird Theatre for select audience. The sharing was followed by a conversation on how to make the show more immersive / interactive for the audiences. Based on the conversations, we decided to tighten the show and do a proper launch (in July, the same year). We will always be grateful to these awesome friends who took time out to see what we had been working on for 2 years and give us the much needed feedback! The show would not have been possible without your support!

Dastaan LIVE Launch @ SHED 9

On 20th July’18, we launched the show and played to a Sold-Out audience at the newly launched space (yes, SHED 9 was also launched with our performance!) in Dhan Mill, Delhi. We did two more shows there (all sold out, Phew!). What started as a Passion Project, finally saw the daylight and we could share this with fellow Delhiites. We were surprised by the appreciation and the support we received by our friends, family and viewers – you can find some of those posted on our wall at our rehearsal space – WIP Labs. We experimented with the live projections (projected on screens that were installed on top of the musicians), built the entire backdrop (using cardboard boxes), replicated the everyday elements that one sees in this city as a part of the set / space design and filled up the space with our evocative / raw music and poetry.

Dastaan LIVE Acoustic @ Downstairs

In Sep’18, we performed the acoustic version of our show at this beautiful, boutique space in South Delhi called Downstairs. We played two shows and both were unique as an this was our first attempt with an all acoustic presentation of our show. We did not use any mics, amps and tech, rather, kept it bare. The projections falling on us (we were seated in one corner) and the minimal use of lights (we literally used 4 light sources!) absolutely made us fall in love with this format – which we are still continuing with and performing at several intimate spaces!

Our first Radio Show @ ISHQ 104.8 FM

WE LOVE SARTHAK, PERIOD! He has been one of the few Genuine supporters of Indie-Music in this country and one of the finest RJ this country has ever seen. We had so much fun doing his show. Hopefully we will be back with him, wherever he is!

Old World Theatre Festival’18

We performed two shows at the OWTF’18 to a packed house. This was our first big show (post our launch in July). We mapped the entire facade of the Open Air Theatre and projected our visuals on it.

Climate Jamboree

We performed at the Thyagaraja Stadium (part of the Climate Jamboree event organised by TERI SAS). It was our first stadium show 🙂

Acoustic @ Catalyst

We performed at a small conference organised by the Catalyst around the theme – New Delhi.
