What we do... practice participatory theatre
With the belief that each one of us have the right to "act", we explore the scope and possibilities of theatre as an empowering tool and a process - engaging with and empowering groups and communities to rehearse change.
As part of a participatory theatre process, we engage with groups and communities to enable them identify critical issues and in the process of play-making explore the potential of their body, movement, songs, music, costumes... thus beginning the journey of breaking the "culture of silence".
At vikalp kriya, we provide support in the area of:
