About: Crab Soup

TARA and The Creative Arts present Crab Soup by Arthur Cardozo at TARA Studio, 356 Garratt Lane, Earlsfield, SW18 4ES on Tuesday 22 July 2008 at 7.30pm.

Directed by Ramanjit Kaur, CRAB SOUP investigates the behavioural changes in the shattered mind of a man who has tested positive for AIDS – the aftermath, the trauma... and henceforth, the changes that take place in his relationships, especially with his partner.

The reaction of the society and family, especially in an Indian context, are addressed in this fascinating new play.

Based on an Indian research project to create a gel contraceptive for women, CRAB SOUP explores the Indian outlook towards AIDS, the ethics of such a research, the empowerment of women through such a contraceptive and the great hope of controlling the spread of AIDS. The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the cast and crew.

Playwright: Arthur Cardozo. Director: Ramanjit Kaur. Set Designer: Sanchayan Ghosh. Performers: Taranjit Kaur, Vajinder Kumar, Payel De, Souptic Chakraborty.

Preceding Crab Soup, TARA Studio will host the Theatre Science Masterclass. Actors and performers from India will explore with UK artists representations of AIDS and sexuality across continents. Open to all UK based professional performers.

Sunday 20th & Monday 21st July 2008, 10am – 4pm. £40 per person.
Only 10 places available.
