Theatre artists and culture critics from across South India came together at Econest in Vagamon, Kerala for the South Indian Dalit Theatre Festival hosted by Chindu. Shadow Liberation hosted a lively shadow dancing session in the first evening.
There were powerful moments of debate denouncing the caste system and moving performances that reminded us of the deep human suffering that results from systemic oppression.
I lead an interactive workshop,"In the Dark", where we creatively strategized how to illuminate the shadows of social injustice. Think Rainbow of Desire meets the shadow cast by the caste system. See more pictures on the Shadow Liberation Facebook page.
