Coming back to In Transit, the 55-minute long performance has been directed by Aditi Venkateshwaran. It examines the representation of systemic and subjective movement in contemporary cultural looking at bodies in transit in India. The performance looks at the intensity of the movements and moments we experience on the streets. 

It senses the physicality in strong and soft tones, a constant searching and uncovering, everything we see around us that we cannot forget and carry within us. In Transit was performed at the Eastern University in Batticaloa, Sri Lanka, in Colombo at the Colombo International Theatre Festival, in April 2017, IAPAR International Theatre Festival 2017 and Abhinaya National Theatre Festival, Hyderabad.
