Children`s Theatre Workshop

Last Saturday in SAWCHU in Bharat Nivas, the international children’s theatre workshop on Tagore literature took place. Mainly given in Tamil, its purpose was to let the children from the villages around Auroville share knowledge, work together and feel as one. And not just the children, but the teachers and some experts in theatre and education as well. The day, facilitated by Dr. Velu Saravanan, consisted of reciting poems and songs, theatre classes and as finale, a small play performed by the children.

This program covers a short interview with Meenakshi, one of the organizers of the day. After that follows the introduction by G. Varadarajan and Aster Patel. The last part covers the play performed by the children at the end of the workshop. The interview is in English, and the introduction and play are in Tamil.
