REVIEW FOR PLAYING A ROLE - DRAMA WORKSHOP BY EVAN HASTINGS
Rainbow Inc. is organizing an interactive theatre workshop by Evan Hastings, a theatre performer and educator. The workshop is on for the 4th and the 5th of July, from 9am to 1pm at Vidyaranya High School.
The workshop will provide men and women with an opportunity to engage in dialogue on gender through theatre exercises, while raising their awareness of how they have internalized concepts of gender. Gender-based violence is a major public health and human rights problem throughout the world. It reflects and reinforces inequities between men and women and compromises the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims. The workshop aims to encourage participants to explore the role they can play in de-escalating the epidemic of gender violence and sexual assault in a world at war. The workshop includes trust exercises, improvisational theatre and structured gender-role-play.
