Colour correction is a comedy about the western perspective of the women’s situation in India. Who is the woman of India today? Can we define her? What are the forces that shape how she is perceived and who gets to have the final word on who she is? Colour Correction presents the perspectives of media, the west and Bollywood in shaping the view of the Indian woman. Elephants, Yoga, Gandhi and now the gang rape…Is this what the sub- continent looks like to the west today? The play is a comedy that follows the life and dream of the everyday Indian woman.

Using the format of meta layer and shadow play, the play raises questions on how western media portrays India, who has the right to tell who´s story. The performance mixes a ”western” linear storytelling with the circular storytelling used in both Bollywood films and old Indian myths.
