In this intimate and charming performance Abhishek Thapar takes us back to the conflict in the Indian province of Punjab, where his family lost their house. In the performance personal memories of three generations in his family collide with the many official versions of this piece of history.
It starts with a reminder of how his family helped him as a little boy to make a play with him as a local superhero in the lead. On the basis of this innocent act he shows us a bloody reality. The past comes to life through his use of video, stories and the flavors he has brought with him from the kitchen of his grandfather.
