Janam, the Indian street theatre group that has been on campus this week under the auspices of the Fisher Center, will present two plays at noon Thursday, March 22 in the atrium of the Warren Hunting Smith Library.
“Voh Bol Uthi” (And She Spoke Up) is a play made up of two stories. In the first, a poor child wants to tie red ribbons in her hair, but is prevented from doing so. In the second, a woman worker finds that she has inadvertently broken the unanimity of struggling workers by demanding a separate toilet for women.
“Nahi Qabool” (Unacceptable!) satirizes the currently fashionable ideas of liberalization and globalization, in which the poor seem to have to pay the largest price.
Performances were originally scheduled for the Scandling Center steps.
Details are available at Street as Stage.
