A fresh and enthusiastic Street theatre group kicked off their first performance with two plays in Kannada on the 2nd of August. The plays in Rajendra Nagar slums were on the topic of HIV aids. The objective of the group was to convey to the rural public on the causes, effect and ways through which this disease was transferred.
The play on the 9th of August dealt with the theme of drug addiction. Held in the quadrangle, it highlighted the general ‘lethargic’ attitude of youngsters towards drugs. In addition to the effect on family, society etc., the show also had interesting statistics of the issue to show.
