Bare Bones

April 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In association with



Kamlesh Acharya’s

a series of six powerful English short plays performed in a minimalistic manner


Bares Bones is a 90 minute theatrical production where you experience a wide spectrum of dramatic possibilities that explore the entire range of human sensibilities, written & directed by Kamlesh Acharya.

Bare Bones does not rely on technological support or props for adding to the experience of story-telling because the team believes that our powerful content can connect without digital assistance. So we deliver the play in its ‘bare bones’ form. Minimal light effects, no sound or music, no props or costumes, no makeup, no gimmicks.

The production is being brought to Pune by Rasa and Drama from Ahmedabad. They have performed in multiple cities like Mumbai and Baroda amongst others.

It is an effort by Gyaan Adab to make the theatrical scene in Pune more inclusive and welcoming of talent from around the country. It is a move on their part to encourage productions to take their plays around and travel the country so as to make dramaturgy more accessible to the masses. Not only does this help the scene become stronger and expose the people to great art, it also builds a stronger community of performers that can collaborate and initiate a flow of ideas and artistic styles.
