About The Last Poet
A poet disappears abruptly, leaving his world haunted. In his maddening city of desire, rumour, and regret, the poet’s poems appear as phantom notes that speak truth to power, and we wonder: Can a poet change the world? The audience meets multiple characters online to unravel the mystery behind his disappearance. They choose their own journey through the show (there are 125 ways to watch it). The Last Poet is an online, live, and interactive show. It is India’s first theatre for the internet.
