On the night of December 16th 2012 – a young woman and her male friend boarded a bus in urban Delhi heading for home. What followed, change the lives of these two people and countless others forever. Internationally acclaimed playwright and director Yael Farber creates a searing new work that cracks open the cone of silence around women whose lives have been shattered by gender-based violence. With a power-house cast and creative team comprising some of India’s finest artists, Farber brings us a blistering evocation of that terrible night and the ripples of change it set in motion. Tearing away the shame that keeps the survivors silent NIRBHAYA is a voyage into a tapestry of personal testimonies that speaks for a nation and world no longer able to hold the tides of change at bay. Much like Farber’s previous award winning testimonial creations (AMAJUBA, WOMAN IN WAITING, HE LEFT QUIETLY) NIRBHAYA bears witness to the extraordinary capacity of the human spirit for survival, redemption and change. An unforgettable work that will move, inspire and speak for the turning tide.devastate and inspire you with the sheer capacity of the human spirit to rise, to bare witness, to survive and turn the tide.
