Theatre

Theatre is the foundation of all drama. In fact, it is the art form that informs practically all performances. From rock and roll to poetry recitation, every time we watch a performance, we are participating in theatre history. At Kuch Khaas, we don’t just value the relationship of a performer with the audience, we believe that theatre is the original and most important form of provocative and timeless observations about the human condition, and it is always going to be an element of our lifeblood.

Kuch Khaas believes in and encourages ideas and social commentary within communities. These performances have the power to express a culture’s ideals and shape them. Art, is important to us because it gives us the ability to form lasting human connections by letting us share our experiences with each other. These connections continue to last as a part of our history and expression, a history Kuch Khaas continues to value, promote and most certainly be a part of.

 

We have hosted productions by Islamabad-based theatre companies, including Insolent Knights and Theatre Wallay. These wonderful companies have availed the Kuch Khaas premises for auditions and rehearsals and have staged several highly acclaimed shows in our performance spaces.

Kuch Khaas celebrates World Theatre Day by arranging a day of theatre exercises and games for amateurs. Participants get the opportunity to learn performance and improvisational skills and the day’s activities ended with a performance by the entire group of participants.

Insolent Knights: Once upon a time, two tiny chicas suddenly had a massive brainwave: “Why don’t we create a show that welcomes actors, poets, singers, dancers, writers, and anyone else who would like to join us, and give Islu some much-needed fresh material?”. They decided to call it Insolent Night. The Tiny Two (Tulin Khalid-Azim and Natasha Ejaz) gathered their friends, and put on a show, and thus, on January 11th, 2008, the first ever Insolent Night came to life, kicking and screaming, and clearly irreverent towards the stuffy conventions that threatened to put the lid on Islamabad’s infant theatre scene.
