Third Space Collective is a group of theatre practitioners and educators trying to create contemporary and experimental work in and about the times that we live in. The last 4 years have seen the Collective produce a series of productions and create solid groundwork to take theatre to the communities that make up the city.
We are bringing two of our productions- Love, Prufrock (Official selection at the Old World International theatre festival) and Pascualnama (Commissioned by Instituto Cervantes, Embassy of Spain) to perform them in Mumbai.
Important note: There are separate ticket links for the two venues - Tamaasha and Castiko.
About the plays-
‘Pascualnama’ is based on La familia de Pascual Duarte by Camilo Jose Cela, a landmark novel in Spanish literature.
This physical piece is pegged on Pascual’s relationship with his mother and his wife, Lola as it attempts to unearth the underlying vulnerabilities that define these relationships. The ‘others’ in Pascual’s performance is strangled by his innocence he wants to preserve in his retellings. And he would have successfully murdered the only strand that mattered to him - the truth. But he ends up making a grave mistake - By performing his narrative, Pascual ends up being performed upon.

Special thanks to Instituto Cervantes Delhi.
T.S Eliot’s 'The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock' inquires into the disillusionment of a man with the times he is living in. Derived from this literary masterpiece, our performance uses the interplay of the human body to understand the poem’s protagonist and the structures surrounding him.
In the attempts to find Prufrock inside the performers' bodies, residing alongside their own anxieties, the performance ends up creating multiple Prufrocks.
