Bye Bye Bombay at the Encores

I’m performing my solo show Bye Bye Bombay as a part of Horse Trade Theater’s Encores Festival this January.


Bye Bye Bombay will be performed at the Kraine Theater (85 E. 4th Street)
PERFORMANCES (65 minutes)
Friday, January 11 @ 8:30pm
Sunday, January 13 @ 8:30pm
Tickets $15

Bye Bye Bombay is a multimedia trip that incorporates a blend of fast-flashing images, movement and sounds that draw the audience deep into the heart of India. It tells the story of Gauri, a young girl who escapes to India to find herself. Instead, Gauri loses herself in Bollywood. There she meets a colorful cast of characters including the washed up starlet, Russian dancer and one lecherous director. A foreigner lost in a maze of masala; will Gauri find something more valuable than glitter and fancy footwork?

Here’s a taste of what the critics have been saying about the show:

“Hard to resist” FOUR STARS -Time Out, New York

“GO!” – LA Weekly

“Critics Pick” – Backstage Magazine, LA

“With the slightest movement, a raised eyebrow or a shift of the hand, Cara Yeates goes from impressionable to confident to smarmy to elegant as a host of colorful characters. This fantastic one-woman show has to be the standout production of the festival.” FIVE STARS – Uptown Magazine

“Yeates is a revelation from the beginning to the end. Bye Bye Bombay is one of the best shows at the Fringe…Do not miss Bye Bye Bombay!” – CBC

“Yeates narrates the journey like a dark fairy tale or a big adventure, using music, dance, animation, and puppets… Bye Bye Bombay is successful as a journey; through an intense multi-sensory experience, Yeates brings us with her halfway around the world and back.” – New York
