Over the next 4 months, past students of The Drama School Mumbai will bring their performances back their school. This is a special feature of “Alumni@theDSM” season of performances. It is a choice selection of new performances by a new generation of theatre-makers who started their journey at the DSM.  The first performance in this series is Chenda, a play devised by BeTaal.


BeTaal is a group of theatre enthusiasts who believe in the off-beat, the breaking of rhythm and going BeTaal. Vaishnavi Rp (2015-16) and Abhinav Grover (2014-15) founded this group last year. Thus far they have embarked on 3 projects: Chenda, Paanchvaali and Mere Abba Mughal-e-Azaam.

A Chenda is a South Indian cylindrical percussion instrument whose ends are covered, usually with animal’s skin. This instrument is famous for its loud and rigid sound. The first is a performance called Chenda which is about a folk artist who realizes that his dead cow’s soul has come into his Chenda. The play opened at Thespo last year.
