Using Theatre and Drama in Conservation awareness

Vikram Sridhar

Basic • Theatre , performing arts , ethology , storytelling , inter species communication • 20 Seats • Short • Starts at 14:00 – 16:30 on DAY 1

Over years performing arts has been a powerful medium in spreading conservation awareness and connecting with communities. Folk arts has many species of flora and fauna ingrained in it . In today’s times theatre is a wonderful way to connect within ourselves and the outside world to understand inter species communication, species relationship with various elements of nature from fire , water , air , earth , space etc.

The workshop through simple games and activities will explore the our own species better , connect and observe other species around us , question notions of ethology deeper all in the framework of just Theatre.

Through acting , reacting and movement the workshop would be a fun way to understand conservational ecology.

The take away could be from looking at animal ethology deeper , using arts for spreading awareness in communities , sharing ideas and scientific facts in a more entertaining way to children.
