Monkey and the Mobile, directed by Rajiv Krishnan, uses mobile phones and technology as a theme to gauge their impact on our lives, through stories - some real, some imagined. Conceived during a 4 week long collaboration between individuals from the fields of theatre, film and music, the play uses a combination of the actor, image and music, with a focus on story telling that is simple and engaging.

Perch is a theatre group based in Chennai. The idea of Perch emerged in 2006 when it organised a fortnight long festival called 'Angloscapes' that focused on the Anglo-Indian community, which included a play, food festival, film screenings, photo exhibition and a music concert. Perch's plays include … And Sunshine Follows The Rain, Sangathi Arinhya! (have you heard!), Moonshine and Skytoffee, Miss Meena, Kira Kozhambu, Jujubee, Vyabaramayanam, How to Skin a Giraffe, and Cheruvannur Diaries – Typewriter Tales, most of which have been staged widely both at festivals and other venues.
