Shanta Gokhale writes about Suar Chala Space Ko

A child's play with a twist

From Mumbai Mirror

Shanta Gokhale

A child’s play with a twist

Suar chala space ko is a play that gets rid of the cliches that plague children’s theatre, while emphasising contemporary issues

Shanta Gokhale

Posted On Thursday, December 30, 2010 at 02:34:38 AM

The suar in Gillo's "Suar chala space ko" is a young man with pig's ears and a mangy pullover. And though he steals tomatoes from his mistress Gulabo mausi's vegetable basket and exudes a stink to end all stinks, he has a big brave name-Bahadur Singh.

However, his infamous stink has earned him another moniker from Rinku and Ishaan, the neighbourhood children. Badbudar Singh. For this reason, the two snooty children keep him at arm's length. But Laddoo Kumar, Ishaan's pet dog, who wears dog's ears and voluminous pajamas, can't afford to be choosy about the company he keeps. As an animal in the human world, he must stick with other animals. So he takes every opportunity to cosy up to the pig and share human secrets.

We were a couple of dozen adults in a houseful of children on Sunday morning at Prithvi, watching Bahadur Singh accidentally activate a space ship and zip off with the others into space to land on a red planet. Within the short time it took for them to return to earth, two things had happened.

Bahadur Singh had been infected with an unknown virus that later infected everybody he touched, and, glory be, he had lost his stink. He was now ill but rechristened Khushbudar Singh.

In this hour-long entertainment, replete with mime, shadow play, gibberish, magic and fantasy, Bahadur Singh, Laddoo Kumar and their humans did things that made us split our sides laughing. They scared the daylights out of each other with sudden shouts, tumbled and fell, quarreled, cried, jumped about and danced.

We loved the clever song in which Rinku flattered Bahadur Singh shamelessly with the good qualities he didn't possess and Ishaan brought him down to earth with the bad qualities he did. We also loved the sound of the instruments that accompanied the singing and dancing and of course the space ship.

The plot itself jumped around quite a bit, sometimes leaving us behind. When the wonderful swathe of red cloth on the red planet began to heave wildly, I overheard a young sprite in the back asking his mother whether it was supposed to be lava. The mother said she didn't know. Later it turned out to have been an earthquake. The sprite objected-- "But no cracks appeared, so how?"

The narrative style of the play may be traced back to its origins. "Suar chala space ko" began as a story for a puppet show, written by three children attending director Shaili Sathyu's workshop. When last year's Summertime Prithvi called for children's plays, Sathyu set to work on it, aided and abetted by members of the Gillo theatre wing.

The actors improvised and strung together situations and scenes, often working without lines. Dialogue was added later. With the action in the hands of children, there was naturally a lot of fun and no preaching.

In the sixties when the children's theatre movement started in Mumbai, there were two extremes of plays. You had ghosts, fairies, witches and wizards, or you had heavy duty messages. In the 40 years that have elapsed since then, preaching to children has received a very bad press.

Naturally, in a play that is by children for children with Sathyu only guiding and giving the play its style, overt messages are out. Rinku and Ishaan happily ostracise Bahadur Singh from their group without being punished. Political correctness? What's that?

And yet, through constant hammering by parents and teachers, children do imbibe ideas of what is good and what is not. So here we have Gulabo mausi neglecting her chores because of her over addiction to television. And here, cleverly tucked into the tale is a message for today save energy.

It was sheer bliss to be a child once again with "Suar chala space ko". When we emerged from the dark of the theatre into the winter sunshine outside, we found ourselves fully recharged to face the adult world of scams, corruption, police inaction, unjust judgements and parliamentary stalemates. Sadly, it was still there.

Children's Day 14th Nov 2010

We celebrated Children's Day with a performance of SUAR CHALA SPACE KO for children from St.Jude's Child Care Centre ( ) on 14th Nov 2010 at PL Deshpande Mini Theatre, Mumbai.
It was a special day for all GILLO people as we felt blessed to be given this chance to bring some cheer in the lives of so many special children. But we were also nervous about how the children and their parents will interpret the parts in the play where illness, hospital, doctors etc are shown. But all our nervous feelings vanished when at the end of the performance the children and parents shared their happiness with us.

There were about 40 children in the audience who are all being treated for cancer and we hope that they will recover soon and go back to their homes and continue with their schooling and normal life.

St. Jude's centre is doing some amazing work and we wish them the very best!

Director's Note about the play 'Suar Chala Space Ko'

Suar Chala Space Ko has been developed through a collaborative process first with participants in my summer workshop for children and then with actors from my drama group. I have scripted and directed the play with a process that went back and forth from script to blocking to improvisations based on the original outline of the puppet play. Many of the scenes were first blocked in mime and then dialogues were added to them. I wanted the play to be understood by small children from 5 years onwards and I didn’t want a text heavy story. That is why we worked on the movements first and then the dialogues, almost to ensure that even if a child is unable to decipher some dialogues, the story shall not be lost.

The actors were given the script in bits and pieces and more often they were given situations related to the play that they had to enact using their own creativity and instincts. At first the actors were not sure about the process and where it would lead them, but they kept faith and participated with an enthusiasm that has helped give the performance the energy that it requires.

The treatment of the play has been done in a manner that relates it to ‘role play’ and ‘story-telling’ done by small children at home and in school. The situations in the play are also written and directed based on story-telling done by children, the elements they focus on and how they jump from one sequence to another, highlighting the parts they like, even though the story telling needs them to explain things that can be understood by all. So the story telling is focussed on the story teller’s whims and fancies and the audience has to fill in the gaps and bits using their common sense and imagination.

We have used shadow play to create an image of the unknown spaceship and this keeps the ambiguity of the situation quite alive. The actions of the actors are based on actions done by children during the shadow play session of our theatre workshop.

The narrative does not necessarily follow a logical graph as understood by adults, but instead follows a fuzzy logic that is typical of children’s writing. So things happen because the children want their story to move in a particular direction, even if the sequence does not fit into the typical logic of stories. And as the story is a fantasy narrative, everything is accepted by the audience!

We have also used stylised dance and movement in some sequences to create a sense of wonder and excitement. I also wanted some portions of the play that do not use verbal expression and that is why two long sequences are choreographed with music and no dialogues. The music has been especially composed with a focus on highlighting instruments and their pure sounds, like the violin, flute, guitar and tabla. Each instrument has been used to denote an action or an experience and we have moved away from electronic sounds as much as possible.

The production design follows the play aspect of children and so most of the props are made from toys and everyday objects that children use during their ‘play’, substituting these objects as things they may or may not be. The stage design is kept simple and flexible and there is no effort to make anything realistic. The spaces are defined by the lighting design, the dialogues and a few props specific to each space. The costumes are kept simple and almost such that children could just pick up stuff around the house and create these by themselves.

I have attempted to use a concept written by children as the starting point and then used two levels of treatment. One in which actors enact the way children would dramatise situations, while the other is a stylisation that is more adult in its direction. Through the play these two levels are interwoven to narrate the story in a manner that children can easily relate to and yet punched with sequences designed to thrill the audience.

The aim has been to perform the play in a manner that does not create a spectacle to overwhelm the children in the audience or to hide the magic behind things, but to do things in a manner that excites their imagination and makes them feel that they can also indulge in similar creative play in their own surroundings with their own everyday objects!

SUAR CHALA SPACE KO - Press coverage

Press Coverage

Bombay Times (Review by Deepa Gahlot)

Shaili Sathyu opened the first production with her newly formed group Suar Chala Space Ko at the Horniman Circle Gardens... kids sat back and enjoyed the play. It was a simple production, which made good use of available resources, to create a spaceship through shadow play and an alien planet with a large swathe of red cloth and choreography. The plot about two kids and their pets who make a quick trip into space with strange consequences, is rather slim, the costumes of the animals and the aliens are kept simple the production shows what can be done with a low budget and loads of imagination. Kids in the audience, have to suspend disbelief (you can’t, for instance, go Mars and back in a few hours), and just enjoy the experience.

Mumbai Theatre Guide (Review by Sudeep Modak)

..... script is tight and compact. It is filled with interesting ideas and twists and turns which hold the audience for the most part. The playwright has created some interesting characters in the form of the chirpy mausi, the whacky doctors, and the multi-lingual aliens. The light tone and humor of the play helps to set the mood and the pace.
.....The play is written in a way that its success heavily depends on the visual design. And the director has done a good job of creating the necessary illusion to support the script. The play's most important device is the design of the space ship. The director plays with shadows throughout the space ship scenes thus enthralling and fascinating its audience.
.....The play entertains and fascinates the children. They also connect well with the characters and the central idea of this play. It creates the desired impact on its audience often inspiring awe and making them laugh.

A short skit based on a picture story book for 4 to 6 year olds.
Gulabo is a spoilt calf, who is selfish and also a big show-off! One day, she gobbles up a basket full of potatoes AND a drum full of pumkins. All this selfish gobbling gives her a lot of err...ummm... GAS! Now what else did you expect!?
The skit ends with how she learns her lesson and starts sharing and making friends.

First Post

Hello, Namaste, Aadaab, Hi...
So finally I have started my blog. 'I' matlab Gillo. That's Gillo Gilehri for those who don't know me at all. I am the mascot for an independent children's media group named after me. This group is based in Mumbai, one of the largest cities in India.
My main job is to guide this company in producing material and organizing activities that help children, parents and teachers to make childhood and learning fun and enriching. (Phew! That's a big responsibility!) Learning that has a focus on knowledge, but with particular emphasis on identity, values and of course - fun. The aim is to provide stimulation for children to develop an interest in and to generate curiosity about the world around them.
We aim to generate print, audio, video and other material for children in India between the age of 1yr and 18 yrs. Products, activities and events shall be in English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujrati and Urdu. There will be a definite focus on content development that is Indian and caters to our children with their realities and context in mind.
Currently there are some companies in India who are working on similar lines. We shall join them in creating more meaningful material for Indian children. We will initiate collaborative projects with other groups and also facilitate inter-disciplinary work across different media under one roof.

Our work will cover a wide range of themes and media. Here are some of the things we want to do. The work is divided into 3 main segments, but we would be working with an inter-disciplinary approach.

Education consultancy services for schools, training for teachers, parents and children.
Design and Development of Teaching Learning Equipment for school children of different ages.
Learning about our world through outdoor activities (sports, farming, gardening, bird-watching, trekking, camping, nature clubs, etc)

Visual Arts - painting, sculpture, pottery, photography, design, etc.

Performing Arts - music, dance, drama, puppetry

Literary Arts

Internet based content (web based resources and games)

The content shall be developed and designed by people who are experienced in the field of education, arts and media. We will involve those who have worked with a special focus on children and have a keen interest in making children’s lives more meaningful and exciting.
Content will be based on the varied experience of professionals, parents, and children, as well as on research by scholars in India and in the Indian context.

I know it all sounds big on paper and seems like a huge task….but we will make it happen – because we want to!
