The allegory of a raindrop seeking a puddle to land in anchors what starts as a marionette show in "Bye-Bye, Bombay," Cara Yeates' solo show about defying her Indo-Canadian mother by visiting, and reliving, her mom's Bollywood experiences in Bombay. Ably supported by Cameron Avery's video design and Sylvan Sailly's animation, the saga tells of a surreal descent into a world of incomprehensible poverty, cruelty and transcendent mysticism. A capable performance about forging an identity.
