WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An inventive fusion of Chekhov's Three Sisters and Tagore's The Home and the World, Sankalpan evokes a time of revolution that draws sharp parallels to the geopolitics of today. A story about self-determination--both in the psyches of individuals hungry for change and in the psyche of an evolving national identity, Sankalpan is set against the volatile backdrop of 1907, Bengal. Personal struggles play out on a national stage, which is rapidly changing as the demands of Independence refigure relationships between British Imperialists and Indian Nationalists, rich landowners and poor peasants, and most explosively, in the new possibilities in the relationships between men and women.
