Katyayani Theatre group (India) is experimenting with different genres of theatre this year. They travelled to Hyderabad, Dubai and Muscat with their rambunctious retro-Bollywood musical Mahim Junction, and will be performing it in Mumbai and China later this year. Come July they have a dramatic reading of three Stephen King stories in a multi-media format before an invited audience at the American Centre in July. In November they launch their new production, Tributaries, based on the lives of two women poet saints from the Bhakti and Sufi streams, who challenged patriarchy by living life on their own terms.
