Keep calm & #ashtag @The Drama School, Mumbai

The Drama School, Mumbai is proud to invite you for a special performance this Saturday!
The Young People’s Theatre Programme focuses on making drama accessible to students, and is the drama education wing of Theatre Professionals, our parent company. This year, we’re proud to present a devised production called Keep calm & #astag conceptualised by the Young people’s Theatre Programme, and commissioned by Max Mueller Bhavan/Goethe Institut, Mumbai

About Keep Calm and #ashtag:

Cyber space becomes a new public space in which gender plays itself out: Why does Nikhil play an online game as a female avatar? Why does Tanya create an anonymous Facebook profile and what does she do with it? What happens when Sachin’s fighting video goes viral? The play looks at the collisions of real and virtual spaces and the drama that unfolds.

The absurd, funny and sometimes painful episodes connect through hyperlinks to a fast-paced ride into the violence of gender construction in teenage years. The play seeks to provoke a healthy dialogue around the complexities that young people face in defining who they are as men and women, and the ways in which they navigate real and cyberspace in their everyday lives.

More details about the play can be found here.

Age suitability: 14 years and above

Duration: 50 minutes

Please note that the performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the the audience and actors.

Date:

Saturday 14th March 2015 at 5.00 p.m.

Venue:
Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh,
5th floor, Purandare Hall, Kele Wadi,
Dr. Bhalerao Marg, Girgaon,
Charni Road East, Mumbai

Poster_The Drama School Mumbai's The Dragon

 

“The only way to keep dragons at bay is to keep one of our own”

A big, bad dragon has reigned over a town for 400 years and now has his eyes set on its loveliest maidens. Right on cue enters the knight in shining armor – a well-travelled young man who is on a mission to save the town and deliver the damsel from her tragic plight.
But there’s just one teeny tiny problem. They don’t want to be saved!

Banned by the Post-War Stalin government for its anti-authoritarian themes, Russian playwright Evgeny Shvarts’ biting satire is spun out of myth and lore.

Shvarts borrows from fairytales and folklore to put together a comic conundrum about power and oppression that helps us understand how we as people seem to continue to feed the head that bites.
