The first show at the Lights! A Festival of Theatre is Folktales from Around The World:
Something new happens every day and adds a color or two to the way we see the world. Stories are like those colors which can make life fun and interesting. Come let's sit together and discover what is 'same' and what is 'different ' in 'us' and 'them'. How much of it is real and how much is imagined in our heads?
This session looks at the possibility of integrating theatre and story-telling as a pedagogical tool by creating a non- judgmental platform for the children to express freely, listen actively and speak their mind without fear. The young participants will be encouraged to interact and reflect on the stories by recreating a scene or just by sharing with others in the ways that they would like. We will be focusing more on telling folk tales and myths around the world and also stories by Indian contemporary writers that are fun and empowering.
