When a confession brings a man and a woman face to face with reality, it has repercussions far beyond what they could have imagined. As further confessions and events unfold, they threaten to tear a family apart. Skeletons tumble rapidly from cupboards and it becomes increasingly unclear as to who is the victim and who is the victimizer. The facade of sophistication is gradually unmasked and the people involved come face to face with themselves.
All because of.....VAAVE.
Director’s note: Vaave is not an oft employed Kannada word in explaining
relationships between people. For example, about two people who are somewhat
related to each other, but not by blood or directly via marriage, it is said – “
In Vaave, you are a brother/sister/uncle/aunt to me”. I interpret the word as “
Unclear relationships”. Which is a neat little title for what I want to tell
through this play. This is a story about a husband and a wife and their daughter
- Seems like a clear enough relationship. A man married to a woman, and they
beget a child. Nothing unclear there. Socially and legally, Yes. Clear as
crystal. However, when vague longings of the soul pull people in different
directions, all relationships undergo a churning that renders them hazy and
unclear. There is an unidentifiable background dissatisfaction in every human
being that remains undefined and unprocessed in most. It is an itch we cannot
scratch because we cannot put a finger on how or whence it came. We think we do
but we don’t know WHAT it is that will bring us steady happiness.
