The theatre society at MICA recently concluded their Annual Production for 2018-19. MICA Sankalp is the in-house theatre society entirely run by the students of MICA.
This year’s Annual Production – ‘Born From Fire', was performed on 26th and 27th October, at H. K. Arts Auditorium. The play was adapted by the famous novel 'The Palace of Illusions' by the celebrated author Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.
'Born from Fire' was the story of a woman who brought about the fiercest war that mankind has ever seen. It depicted her journey from a young naive girl to a wise queen who had seen the darkest colours of mankind. The play aimed at presenting the epic without the shackles of gender and caste. In a nutshell, 'Born from Fire' was a retelling of Mahabharata from Draupadi's perspective.
The theatrical extravaganza was entirely directed, performed and organized by the students of MICA. Over 500 theatre lovers attended the play across two days. The play 'Born from Fire' was sponsored by Qutone Ceramic tiles and powered by Vivo Smartphones. The other brands who partnered with MICA Sankalp were Himalaya, Croma Retail Store, Happy Easy Go, O2 Spa, Auraganic essentials, Sun Coco, All Good Scent, Fluff in a Cup, Jashn, Havmor, Amicorum, The Dark Roast, Burgerlicious, Huber & Holly, Bestie Salon and The Project Café.
