Monologue / The Play Factory Delhi
Actor / May 2020
TRIGGER WARNING - Abuse, Stalking
Presenting 'Touch' for The Play Factory's Quarantine Monologue series. This monologue features one of the most intriguing characters I've played over the last few years – Steve from the play 'Threesome Without Simone' written by Kristo Sagor.
The play examines the lives of three boys who are being investigated for molesting a female classmate. The character of Steve, who is the present boyfriend of the girl in question, shows multiple emotions – obsession, guilt, hurt, defiance, arrogance. His behaviour repeatedly blurs the lines between love, lust, and abuse.
Reels & TikToks
Short-Form Content / Social Media
Various / 2020 onwards
I started producing short-form video content for social media such as Instagram Reels and TikToks in mid-2020 at the height of the pandemic as a way to engage myself.
At the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, I worked on a performance research project that explored performativity and theatricality on TikTok, which compelled me to continue creating these videos.
None of these are intended to be taken seriously, please feel free to scroll the video gallery and amuse yourself.
