BE CAREFUL

                   © Ligne Directe 2010

Conceived and performed by Mallika Taneja



Caution is central to a woman’s experience of life in India. It is prescribed, imbibed and practiced with rigour, so that women can be ‘safe’.


Thoda Dhyaan Se (Be Careful) is a satirical piece that challenges this notion of safety. Rooted in a widespread anger against the everyday violence against women, the performance confronts the unfortunate conflation between the manner in which women dress and the atrocities committed against them. Stripping down a culture hiding behind its ignorant, prudish mores, Mallika Taneja exposes the contradictions at the heart of India’s stunted social progress.


Be Careful resonates with women and men all over. Although rooted in India, the multilayered issues that the piece addresses has found in many other contexts: United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Slovenia, Italy, Australia, Japan.
