Wizard From Far West
Timing: 4.30 – 6 pm
Venue: Cat Café Studio
Watch this play about a 9 year old kid who hates being mollycoddled by his mother. Through his evening in the streets, he experiences events which make him realize the importance of family, values and the virtues in life. Every time he gets into trouble he is rescued by Mandrake, the Magician, the comic strip character published by King Features Syndicate. The events are decorated with real life magic on stage performed by an adept magician playing Mandrake.
MeetSpeak: Engineer The Sambar! – 2
Timing: 1.30 – 4.30 pm
Venue: IIT Bombay, Powai
A #MeetSpeak is a peer-feedback event where writers can share their works-in-progress with each other and exchange constructive feedback and have conversations about writing.
If you’re stuck on what to write, here’s our optional #PushToWrite: Isaac Asimov’s short story ‘The Fun They Had’ talks about a world where children get individual instruction via computers and wonder about a time when people would laugh and learn together. While schools teach us maths and reading, it’s the college life that brings other lessons outside the classroom as well. Campuses are communities. They are also entire subcultures. Hark back to your teenage years. The conversations that shaped you, the peer groups that defined you, the addas that housed your dreams. And turn these into a piece of writing!
This is not a performance showcase or a networking event. Please not that this is open to writers willing to share their writing ONLY; no passive observers. All attendees need to bring at least one original piece of writing which is not business, commercial, technical or anything they get paid to write.
Timing: 7.30 – 9 pm
Venue: Harkat Studios, Versova
How will two misfits with a vernacular background find their voices in a hyper competitive, ruthless classroom obsessed with ‘sounding English’?
Can the politics of language make a compelling comedy? Can the inherent germ of imagination break through the linguistic hierarchy?
Can a revolution in storytelling begin at a school bench? The two act, 90-minute performance of English Medium attempts to ask these questions while trying to tickle your funny bone.
The play originally premiered at the NCPA Summer Fiesta 2014 and Harkat Studios is glad to bring it back on the floor!
Directed by: Trimala Adhikari
Written: Satchit Puranik
Performed: Priyanka Charan, Arpit Singh, Sonali Bharadwaj, Veena Nair, Hayder Ali.

Shibori Workshop – With Iteeha
Timing: 11 am – 3 pm
Venue: Makers Asylum, Andheri E
Tie-dye is a modern term for a set of ancient resist-dyeing techniques, and for the products of these processes. The process of tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, knotting, stitching tying or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by application of dyes. The manipulations of the fabric prior to application of dye are called resists, as they partially or completely prevent the applied dye from coloring the fabric.
Shibori (Japanese name or Tie and Dye) is part of the larger family of resist-dyeing techniques that can be found in different forms across many cultures.
Tie-dye is a method of tying or stitching fabric together to prevent the absorption of dye to a particular area, dyeing is the process of applying colour on cloth to produce a design. Although the techniques of tie and dye vary from culture to culture, the concept of dying remains one of the oldest methods of printing design on fabric.
The design obtained from the placement of the pleats, stitches and ties can never be an absolute means of predetermining the final visual result.
List of materials inclusive
