About the performance

HAOAI (The Eleventh Planet) is a theatrical metaphor that exposes, in a most interesting way, the absurdity and crisis of living in a world sans dreams and desire. So three protagonists, in this case, three eternal tramps of any city or any country, refuse to live in this mundane world and want to fly to a self-invented eleventh planet where they can fulfil their common desire to live an ideal life. To see their dream come true they engage themselves in inventing a spacecraft that will transport them to that alien world. It is a conscious utopia, whose means of survival nevertheless work, so it is real.

The most unique aspect of this play is that all these existential questions are raised in the guise of witty dialogues, semi-farcical attitudes and slapstick comedy, which requires the highest acting mastery.

HAOAI – based on the play The Eleventh Planet by Evald Flisar, translated and adapted for the Indian environment by Ratan Kumar Das and directed by Goutam Halder, was selected from among 250 Indian theatre companies to appear at the national festival 11th Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards 2016, where it received four major awards, Best Director, Best Actor in a supporting role (Female), Best Actor in a supporting role (male) and Best Scenographer.

Premiere: 29. januarja 2015
