About the Performance

Zig is on an intergalactic mission to save his planet. He is searching for a miraculous liquid which leads him to Earth. Here, Zig discovers the magic of the water cycle. He has many questions for the earthlings, but the biggest one is about how we treat this life saving liquid.

V Aarti is a theatre artiste, writer and translator. She has an M.A. in Literary Arts & Creative Writing and her first children’s book is a forthcoming publication by Katha. Aarti’s work is centred around creating make-believe worlds for children that mirror complex realities. She is deeply interested in the metaphoric possibilities of puppets and is currently working on concepts at the intersection of arts and science. She has specialized in children’s theatre and has worked as an actress, theatre facilitator and Asst. Director in Delhi for the past 7 years. Aarti is also a core member of Khilona, India’s first company of adults performing for children.

University, Baroda, and he studied textile design at Sir J.J School of Art. His work engages with responding to absurdity linked with the often overlooked, and what leads to formation of the self. He has taught as a visiting lecturer at NID Haryana, at HSEA Bangalore for 4 years and has led a workshop for the Kochi students' Biennale. He has written and illustrated for curriculums and children's books with Art1st and Little Light. Ankit has a deep liking for picture books, and the world of children fascinates him.

Adheep Das is a graduate of the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune. He likes mixing various mediums and finding out what comes of them.

'Moonless', a film he directed and animated, has competed at Dok Leipzig, Germany, and Dharamshala Intl. Film Festival. His documentary 'Khaalti Kaay Varti Kaay' competed at IDSSFK, Kerala. Some of his work has also been exhibited as part of the Kochi-Muziris Students' Biennale and the Wrong Biennale.
