WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENOUGH
As part of the Spirit of Africa Festival, Akshara Theatre in association with The P(ART)icle Collective presents WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENOUGH, presented by Theatre for Change (Bengaluru).
Inspired by African-American playwright Ntozake Shange’s brilliant piece of choreopoems, the play is adapted to the Indian context and consists of multilingual monologues, poetry and dance narrated by women across age, class and gender. These reflect the various struggles that women face, from gender discrimination to the personal challenges faced in relationships due to national border conflicts. These are first person stories spoken mostly in English, with some Hindi and Punjabi also. Narrated as compelling monologues, they reflect the power of storytelling and what it means to be in control of our stories. It reinforces that every story has a soul and a message that needs to be told, heard and counted. Directed by Sujatha Balakrishnan.
