Theatre has not been widely used in education, as it should have been. We remember our four Vedas but forget the fifth one which is theatre, Theatre works on the person. Theatre is a laboratory of self-exploration, a space to challenge one’s own self, self-worth, strength and weakness, ability to connect with others, emotional intelligence, expression, openness and likewise which leads into deep understanding of human processes.
Below are some videos that showcase theatre plays created by our participants. Do get in touch with us for such creative interactions with your community.
