Making Theatre Accessible

Sub.: Support Gillo in Making Theatre Accessible – sponsor tickets for 10, 20 or 50 children at our shows in Oct. 2012

Dear Friend,

Gillo Theatre Repertory is happy to inform you that our play KYUN-KYUN LADKI will be staged as part of Junoon's Arts at Play for Schools in Mumbai on 4th and 10th Oct 2012. (Visit )

These shows are specifically for schools in Mumbai, but we at Gillo would like to also make our shows accessible for children who otherwise do not have access to theatre performances, including under-privileged children and children with different abilities.

Gillo is offering to children from NGOs in Mumbai the opportunity to visit the theatre and watch our play. We offer a maximum of 50 seats per show for children from NGOs. The children will also get a chance to interact with the actors after the show.

Under our initiative ‘Making Theatre Accessible’, over the past year over 600 children from NGOs like Prerana, Salaam Bombay Foundation, Salaam Baalak Trust, Navjeet Community Centre, Our Children, Apne Aap Women’s Collective, Asha, Pune and other organizations have experienced our performances. We firmly believe that inclusion during childhood is the way towards a sensitive and compassionate society. Ours is just a small effort in that direction.

This time we seek YOUR support to make this a reality and extend this experience to more children.

Kyun-Kyun Ladki is based on Mahashweta Devi’s well known picture-storybook, Why-Why Girl and celebrates the thrill of ‘WHY?’ It is the story of Moyna and at the same time the story of so many children, all who always ask the question ‘Why?’ Performed through dance, movement and live music, the play shows glimpses of their lives and of their minds.
