The last chapter of Serendipity Arts Foundation’s new initiative #BeyondSerendipity brings you Amitesh Grover’s experimental theatre production, ‘The Money Opera’ to the capital with the support of The Gujral Foundation.
Commissioned by Serendipity Arts Foundation, The Money Opera first opened to an overwhelming response at the Festival’s 2002 edition, where it was showcased in an abandoned building in Goa. The Gujral Foundation provided support to the project by giving the venue space in Delhi — The Factory – an abandoned site in the middle of industrial buildings.
The theatre production unravels stories of greed, desire, love, ambitions and a multitude of emotions and behavioural patterns that dictate our ways of being. The 90-minute show gives agency to the audience over which story they want to engage with but they hold no power over what happens inside the building. The characters inhabiting the space come from varied spectrums of socio-cultural backgrounds and feature a mix of professional actors and real-life performers. The audience will meet a young billionaire, a ghost, an inheritor, a landlord, a child goddess, a thief, a poet, a stock-broker, a rebel, an explorer, and several others who share their stories that are intricately woven into the fabric of the society.
