SYNOPSIS

A lonely, friendless old man lives alone in a house.  One day he meets a stray puppy dog in the garden where he goes for his regular morning walk. Every morning the puppy dog teases him and makes him uncomfortable. There develops a grudging friendship between them.  

One day a dog-catcher catches the dog, takes him away, and puts him in a cage. As usual the old man comes to the garden but the dog is nowhere to be seen. 

What ensues is the story of their separation, search for each other, and joyful reunion. This is a story that makes you smile and sigh. And shows you the wonder of puppet theatre.

ARTISTS' SUPPORT PROJECT

The pandemic has been harsh for the artists' community who have largely been forgotten for organisational support and by larger public consciousness. Those who could adapt to the digital, did. Majority have been out of work and earnings since March 2020. But artists have stood by artists. The support has come from within. This production is the result of the efforts of 3 individual object theatre artists who created digital shows and donated part income to this project, over 100 viewers and donors, and 3 arts organisations who came together to enable new performances by 3 deserving artists. This play is created by Mumbai & Delhi-based puppeteer Kapil Dev. By buying a ticket to this show, you will support an artist and art. 



ABOUT THE ARTIST

Kapil Dev has been working in puppetry & theatre for the last 25 years. He taught puppetry & theatre at Salaam Baalak Trust for 11 years. He has directed 27 short & full-length plays for children & adults, conducted puppet theatre workshops for schools and NGOs. He has also worked in theatre, films, and TV serials as a puppeteer & actor. Buddy is his latest production.


Vinay Bhaat inherited the traditional puppet art of Rajasthan which he protects & promotes. He received his initial training in puppetry from his grandfather, the late Sh.Naurang Bhaat, a Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee in puppetry. Vinay Bhaat further specialised in puppetry from eminent traditional Rajasthani puppet artists Sh. Puran Bhaat & Sh.Lala Bhaat, also SNA awardees.
