Mirel Masingkha

Producer - The Kanglei Mime Theatre Repertory

Language - Non Verbal

Duration - 60 minutes


Dedicated to Irom Chanu Sharmila, 'Mirel Masingkha' is a physical play based on her repressed campaign against terrorism. In the last few decades Manipur has been witnessing a chaotic state full of incorrigible incidents: the stink, full of rot, corruption, killing, massacre, violence, oppression, and the inhuman crimes under the shield of the Black Law. Against such chaos stood up Irom Chanu Sharmila in the year 2000, with her Fast Unto Death campaign. Her campaign is accused of being an attempt to suicide which is against all human constitutions. Sharmila has no plea for respite to the charge against her campaign. However she pleads the official for realization of her cause. The mime play venerates the unrelenting Spirit - "Mirel personified" of Irom Chanu Sharmila.
