ATUL PETHE WITH KALYANEE MULAY AND PARNA PETH

In its continuing series of conversations in memory of Rekha Sabnis, the Drama School Mumbai (DSM), will host Atul Pethe, Kalyanee Mulay and Parna Pethe this weekend.

The Pune-based director and actor Atul Pethe has stood at the intersection of art and activism. For the past 35 years, he has been highlighting stories from the fringes through his experimental plays, writings, and documentaries. He combined forces with the Pune Nagar Mahapalika Kamgar Union to stage SATYASHODHAK, a play about the life of Jyotiba and Savitribai Phule. His play RINGAN raised issues and questions following the assassination of Dr Narendra Dabholkar. With his latest play SAMAJSWASTHAYA, he brings to the fore Dr. Ragunath Dhondo Karve's groundbreaking work in the 1920s that aimed to educate people about sexuality, which to date remains a taboo subject in our country.

His daughter Parna Pethe works in experimental theatre as well in films. She is one of the founders of Natak Company and has worked extensively with Aasakta Kalamanch, two big names in experimental Marathi theatre. Her first short film won a National award and in 2014, she was awarded a Marathi Filmfare award for her debut in Photocopy. Most recently, she made waves as the plucky reporter in Faster Fene.

Kalyanee Mulay describes herself as a ‘a performer, traveller and explorer’. This NSD graduate has recently come to critical acclaim through her work in Marathi films like Ringan and Nude: Chitraa. Actor Kalyanee Mulay, after graduating from the National School of Drama in Delhi, has performed in plays and short films like Sunrise and Vilag, as well as Ribbon and Ringan. Concurrently, she has performed at the National School of Drama and at the Colombo Theatre Festival.
