SEVEN will be part of an anti-gender-violence campaign, sponsored by groups called the Society for the Promotion of Youth and Masses, S.S. International Live, pandies theatre, and the American consulate. The tour will include workshops on gender violence and also street theatre.
The Chennai Program:
The play SEVEN is going to be performed on 21 November by seven exchange alumni and three actors from pandies' theatre at 7.00 PM in Rani Seethai Hall. On 22 Nov. pandies' is collaborating with Sampath Muthuvelan's theatre group 'Nalamdana' for a 25 minute community performance at 4.30 PM in Olcutt Koppum. The performance will be mainly choreography and interactive snippets in Tamil about local issues of gender based violence. Do come for both performances. We are hoping that the global and the local - so very different from each other - will speak to each other and resonate to eliminate GBV.
