Thou art light, fill me with thy light

Thou art Light, fill me with Thy Light

Kahkasha , Dramatics Hindi

The world of Kahkasha revolves around setting a thought free, making a voice heard and an effort to make a difference in the world. Kahkasha creates a positive atmosphere every time it steps in to perform. Established in 2007, Kahkasha, the Dramatics Society of Jesus and Mary College is one of the most loved and prominent Dramatics societies of the Delhi Collegiate Theatre Circuit. Over the years, Kahkasha has been known for its sensitive selection of socio-politico topics, bold voices and opinions, binding acting, writing and the zeal to perform with positive energy.

Our past productions — “Dua”, “The Other Side” and “Daawat” have been celebrated in and outside Delhi. They have been loved, accepted and acknowledged by our audiences. We have proudly and happily performed our production at over 90 places in and outside Delhi, the highlights of which include: Antaragini, the annual cultural festival of IIT Kanpur and Mood Indigo, the annual cultural festival of IIT Mumbai and The National School of Drama Kahkasha is an inclusive space of individuals who have each others back. It is an atmosphere of mutual growth, love and respect. More than anything, Kahkasha is about team spirit and camaraderie.

Our annual street play event, 'AAWAZ' is one of the most awaited events in the Delhi Theatre circuit. Our fest celebrates the beauty of theatre and gives people a platform to express their art. With one of the most renowned sponsors, judges and artists AAWAZ is truly one of the best events held all over Delhi University.

Kahkasha conducts its annual auditions after a new batch arrives. The auditions are conducted in several rounds and after a rigorous process we select our new team. There is no set criteria to sign up for this society. Individuals with zeal and enthusiasm to create art are welcomed with open arms.

Our motive remains the same despite being unable to perform. We aim at making socio-political impact through our art.

We believe that the magic lies within the periphery.
