Visit by Indian playwright, Girish Karnad to Rutgers

Global Initiatives 2011-12 “Technologies Without Borders” Theme

October 12-14

Girish Karnad, UNESCO world theater ambassador, one of the foremost living Indian playwrights, bilingual writer, director, actor and activist; recipient of many national and international honors.

Karnad’s latest play, Broken Images (which toured the US last semester and which was selected to represent Indian drama at Festival of India in Washington this year ) uses TV screens and digital media on his sets to talk about the fragmentation of modern life. The line between electronic and real-world existence is blurred in this play and it raises questions about the composition of modern life in a way few other contemporary plays do.
