Gillo Repertory Theatre and G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture - Official present


Chidiya, Udd!


A non-verbal play for children 1 to 4 years


directed by Shaili Sathyu

with the collaboration of Valeria Frabetti (Teatro Testoni Ragazzi - La Baracca)

with Barkha Fatnani and Dhanesh Gopalakrishnan

with choreography support from Hamsa Moily

in collaboration with Assitej India


30 minutes + 15 minutes playtime


A visitor sits on the window sill every day. It is a little bird, in search of all the little things it needs. Curiosity brings the bird and a little child together and a new friendship begins. The two friends discover many things around them. We see glimpses of the time they spend together. Through the play we share their joys and discoveries.

The play is inspired by baby poems and food rhymes from different Indian languages.
