The stories in Bhagi Hui Ladkiyan begin on a random day. These are first hand retellings of day to day in Nizamuddin basti. The spectator is invited to enter the performer's world- through everydayness of the narrative. The play explores the actors’ gendered bodies and their relationship with the self, others and public spaces - the piece uses objects, physical theatre, and cartography to devise a thought provoking experience. Bhagi Hui Ladkiyan was commissioned as a part of Gender Bender 2016 supported by Goethe Institut Bangalore and Sandbox Collective. Dhwani Vij collaborated with Aagaaz Theatre Trust to develop a 15 minute long piece, which was presented at the festival as a work-in-progress piece. The original piece was devised with two actors - Nagina and Jasmine. With the support of the Refunction Grant by Goethe Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan Delhi, an hour long show was directed with 4 actors.
