WeMove Theatre’s children’s Theatre wing, Tiny tales presents ‘Dinosaur named Nirmala’ - an interactive play for children, written and directed by Abhishek Iyengar. The play is about four kids who embark on an adventure to find a dinosaur named Nirmala. Nirmala is a very mysterious creature, who has only been heard of and not seen by anyone except for Govind Uncle, who is well known to everyone in the neighborhood. This adventurous journey takes these kids through a thrilling ebb and flow of excitement, knowledge sharing and lots of fun In a day of global warming and protecting the environment from our hazardous actions, the underlayer of the play talks about saving the planet for us and the future generation and how our ignorant practices are affecting the world environment.


The play also helps in instilling the curious nature in children keeping their internet enabled tabs and phones away which in turn helps in improving cognitive skills and overall personality development.
To know whether the kids finally find Nirmala or not, one has to watch the play.

6. Tsuinn Tapak-  Sunday, 8 December 2019 from 18:00-19:00

The onomatopoeic title captures the essence of the performance - which is to present children with quick moments that are joyful and thoughtful. Through a blend of sound, rhythm, music, movement, and blasts of 'magic', the performance will invite children to engage with, and learn from, a series of experiences - ranging from the manic to the calm, from din to silence, from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

While avoiding the ‘single’ narrative, the performance employs a non-linear structure, made up of short vignettes that transport the child to a world of diverse possibilities. Minimalist in its form, the performance is designed to travel and happen with minimum fuss. In other words, the production has simple props and is not dependent on technical requirements usually associated with performance.
