CRED has announced two unique Live sessions that members can treat themselves to this weekend. The first session on Friday, 8th May 2020 features a virtual play – ‘Lockdown Love’ created and presented by artist collective Kommune. The second session to be conducted on Saturday, 9th May 2020 would be a Live session with Kalki Koechlin which would involve her sharing spoken word poetry, talking about her journey in the arts, along with an interactive Q&A session. These sessions are part of the CRED Experiences being offered to members as rewards for being creditworthy and responsible, thereby incentivising good financial behaviour.
In a bid to spread positivity during social isolation, CRED is hosting these sessions for members to make their journey meaningful and worthwhile. Art has the power to inspire joy and can help the members find freedom and a true expression of themselves. To further this thought, CRED is bringing a range of live performances, art workshops, and unfiltered conversations with artists through CREDLive sessions.
CRED has partnered with Kommune to release a virtual play “Lockdown Love”. The story has been adapted from Jonathan Rand’s ‘Check Please’, and it is a (very) modern-day take on arranged romance-in the time of a pandemic. Like any other play, this would feature multiple actors, character switches, costume changes, and different scenes, however, all this would be presented to the audiences through videoconferencing. Featuring a stellar line up of artists including Shriya Pilgaonkar, Priyanshu Painyuli, Tanmay Dhanania, Ashwin Mushran, Kira Narayanan and Sheena Khalid, this is a first of its kind experience for CRED members that can be watched from the comforts of their home.

“It’s so amazing to collaborate with CRED, a brand that creatively adapts and always believes in doing more for their customers. Kommune is delighted to present “Lockdown Love” a virtual interactive play that is a joyride into the topsy turvy world of online dating during the ongoing COVID crisis.” said Tess Joseph, Khaleesi, Kommune
The Live session with Kalki Koechlin will have her perform an original, unreleased spoken word poem, talk about what inspired her into the creative field and her journey while also sharing her learnings from being an unconventional artist and individual. The spoken-word piece is written in the context of lockdown, with the idea to spark hope and positivity amongst all during this time. The session will close with a moderated Q&A between her and the CRED members.

“A lot has changed in recent times, and we are navigating through formerly unseen situations. I am excited to speak to CRED members about my art, theatre, and presenting to them a spoken word piece I have worked on. CRED has created a great platform for engagement, and I look forward to my session with the members”, added Kalki Koechlin.
CREDLive sessions are exclusive digital experiences for CRED members thoughtfully curated to bring content that is unique, fresh and relevant. From sessions on managing productivity by Ankur Warikoo, a comedy masterclass with Tanmay Bhatt & Biswa Kalyan Rath, Live music concerts from artists including Raghav Meatle, Mali and Ankur Tewari and even yoga and fitness sessions with Avni Talsania and Simrun Chopra, CRED has been providing members with innovative ways to stay engaged during this quarantine period. They have been designed to encourage creativity and collaborative learning whilst engaging with the CRED community. Upcoming lessons in yoga, songwriting and personal finance have also been lined up to ensure members have a unique learning experience each time, that isn’t available elsewhere. With CRED membership being free of cost, there’s no reason not to participate.
