Passion Fruit Trailer

This trailer is more like a highlights reel for the artists involved. While this may not make "sense" if you didn't see the play, you can get a feel from it.

Second Annual Drishya Facilitators Training

What a joy it was to work with the Drishya facilitators again. This year we were joined by students from Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology.
We reviewed the activities from last years training (see blog post), then created a couple Forum Theatre Pieces.

One of the Forum Pieces was about a male student sexually harassing a female student and the teacher was missing all the signs. The other piece was about government workers cutting down large trees to widen the roadway. It was a combination of critical thinking through drama, and critical laughing from the belly. I can't wait for the next one!

Drama Therapy and Social Work

Imma Rennis and I facilitated a workshop at the Government Post Graduate College in Hyderabad, for the MA Social Work students. The group was so enthusiastic until we did a role play including the phrase "I love you", then the group froze. Participants commented that "I love you" isn't something to say out loud in public. If we can't say it can we play it? Love is an action.
