Theatre workshop at WCC: Day 12

For day 11, in association with Marappachi Trust, we organised a theatre workshop for the students of B.A English at WCC. It was conducted by Mangai Arasu, and aided by Srijith. There were about 20 girls in total, and we started off with a few theatre and performance games, followed by games which also had undertones of gendered understanding. Some of the games included; the shadow game, where we were divided into pairs and we had to try to escape each other (similar to how one needs to escape a harasser); time to prepare a small skit on standing up for oneself; and enacting situations of gendered conflict. We ended the session with a discussion on how we felt after each game, and what learning we took back.
