“Caution” is a central part of women’s life experience in India. It is an ordered and assimilated condition that is practiced with rigor. Only in this way can women feel “safe”.
Thoda Dhyaan Se (Be Careful) is a satirical work that challenges this notion of “security.” The performance confronts the sad bond between the way women dress and the atrocities committed against them, as if the former begets the latter. With irony and lightness, but also precision and a provocative spirit, sole performer from Delhi Mallika Taneja faces her audience and offers them a text denouncing the hypocrisy.
