LTG PROMPT PLAY CHALLENGE
An artistic experiment in collaboration with Art and Culture Fest based on the premise of withholding a part of the information from the participants.
We recruited ten actors/artists to play a game of storytelling with us which required them to write a one-minute play and do its dramatic reading on camera. We gave them each two unique words (prompts) to include in their script and only the previous actor's script as a jumping-off point. What we didn't give them was any sense of their position in the queue, the whole story so far (they didn't know anything about the character or plot except from their immediate predecessor's script) and where to go with it. It was like inventing a new story with each turn. This happened ten times, each time a new beginning, and the results were thrilling.
The whole story made by stitching ten individual videos together is presented below. See for yourself what became of this wild experiment. For more information on the artists and their prompts, visit our Instagram feed -- @ltgdelhi

LTG READING CLUB ON
Each month we select a play to read throughout the month and make the most of the time that we now have. Theatre is all about drama, and we love reading it as much as performing or watching it on stage. Yes, we may not be able to go to our beloved theatres right now, but we are trying to stay in loving contact with what we love the most -- drama.
Haven’t read high-stakes, destiny-altering drama in a while? Here you go! January’s #ltgreadingclub pick is Dido, Queen of Carthage by Christopher Marlowe (with possible contributions from Thomas Nashe). It is one to awaken all those dramatic goosebumps!
We have a strong queen, a refugee from Troy, and several gods and goddesses trying to meddle in their business. The result? Tragedy.
Find a copy of this Elizabethan classic here. Let’s kick off 2021 basking in Marlowe’s verses!
