Pravat creates these with material that draws on lived experiences of the built environment. His works evoke the disintegration of cityscapes where blueprints, maps, architecture and geological landmass collapse into one another.

Cross Connection – online play

Sometimes, the wrong train can take you to the right station. Or, a cross-connection can make for a lucrative situation. In the online play, Cross Connection, theatre veterans Rajit Kapur and Shernaz Patel, among others, create a story of two strangers, who became connected through a wrong number. One is a thief planning a bank heist and another migrant labourer in desperate need of funds. Throw in a policeman and a distant wife and you have a bubbling pot of trouble.

From June 12 (on BookMyShow). Charges: Rs 199
