Purana Residences allegorizes Indian mythology as a residential apartment, inhabited by well-known legendary characters. The play scrutinizes a variety of situations faced by numerous married couples from Indian epics, legends and folktales, albeit with a modern-day lens. In doing so, the play explores the relevance of these stories to our contemporary world. Does modernity compel us to reread these stories in new ways, thus interrupting the grand narratives of tradition and culture? Or are we repeating these prototypes and their traumatic potentials over and over again? Is social change possible?
Purana Residences is written by Hemang Yadav and directed by Gavin Low.
“Purana Residences” and “Makyng the Myth Myne: Using Mythology in Playwriting” is led by Hemang Yadav from Brown Voices as part of Centre 42’s Co-Lab Residency.
